This is a stranded colorwork sock pattern. It was made to take advantage of minis or leftovers for the contrast colors, but also looks beautiful worked as a two color sock.

My purpose with these socks was to take the guesswork out of stranded colorwork knitting. Which size do I knit? Which needle size do I pick? Do I have to go up or down needle sizes while knitting them? How do I actually make them fit?

I answer all of these questions in the pattern. I give guidance on choosing the size to knit, as well as the needle size to choose.

I have made these socks to be knit on one needle size throughout the pattern - no more forgetting to change needle sizes and frogging.

There is a full 1.5 pages of Notes and Tips, to help you achieve well fitting socks.

Since each “band” of flowers is rather wide, I have also included an optional chart to add some length to the sock after completing the main chart, and before you knit the toe, if needed, to help you reach the correct length for you or your recipient.

There are also two toe lengths included to choose from.
