Strawberries & Cream Frappé Socks - PDF Knitting Pattern
Anyone who knows me very well knows that I love all types of coffee, even the super sweet coffee drinks. I met Bogga of Knitting In France at a recent fibre festival. We decided to work together on this collaboration. The yarn she gave me to work with instantly reminded me of the Strawberries and Cream Frappé coffee drink.
About the socks: The majority of the socks are a cabled/texture pattern that reminds me of strawberries. Just before the cuff of the sock, there is a section of twisted stitches that remind me of the cream on top of a frappé. The cuff follows in the pattern of the cream section without the twisted stitches.
It’s time to grab your Strawberries & Cream Frappé, your yarn, & your needles & cast on your socks. Happy Knitting!
