Winter's Gift Socks
  5 customer reviews

These cozy socks evoke the alternate hush and crunch of a nighttime walk on fresh snow, with colorwork and slip-stitch patterning forming images of snow falling against the starry sky before piling up in drifts and banks below. Fun to knit and even more fun to wear, these socks will quickly become a winter favorite.

Winter's Gift is knit from the toe up in the round. Beginning with the lighter main color, slip-stitch patterning is worked across the top of foot and up the ankle. Mini gussets are added before and after the short-row heels to give a more generous heel allowance. Above the ankle, the slip-stitch pattern extends around the entire leg before changing to a wide band of two-color stranded colorwork.
