Teenage Kicks Socks
This simple pattern is perfect for those wanting to practice their sock-making skills and shows self-striping yarns to their fullest advantage! Colorful with plenty of punky attitude, you'll soon have a new pair of stripy socks to get your kicks right through the night.
These socks are knit from the top down and the pattern is easily adaptable for DPNs, Magic Loops, or 2 circulars so you can use your favorite knitting method. To make a pair of matching socks, make sure you are starting your socks at the same point in the striping sequence! It may be helpful to hand wind your skeins to be certain the stripes are going the same way. This pattern was written with a 5.5" leg length — but you can make it shorter or longer; however, if you do the latter you may need an additional skein of yarn.
Note: Felici and Felicini are limited edition yarns that release periodically. It is not always available, and the color offering changes regularly. See available options in the Kit Builder below.
