The Spruce Socks are a warm, quick knit that will make you want to cozy up with a book and cocoa by the fireplace. These socks are also wonderful gifts. At approximately 80 grams per pair, you can make up to three pairs with the required yarn – simply switch the colors around.
The socks are knit from the cuff-down in the round with a heel flap and gusset. Color changes in this pattern are achieved with slipped stitches. Only one color is used per round.
