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.
There are instances in this pattern where the same stitch is slipped two rows in a row. When in doubt, trust the pattern. The original chart is correct, but please see the updated chart for a more accurate representation of the work in progress.
