“These socks are perhaps the most Christmassy socks in the world and are a real treat for your feet!” Knit Now Magazine issue 122.

First available in Knit Now magazine and now available as an individual pattern direct from the designer these socks feature candy canes, gingerbread men, Christmas trees, and snowflakes. Written for a range of sizes, you can knit a pair for the whole family (socks are a lot quicker to make than matching Christmas jumpers and, nestled in boots or shoes, more likely to be worn all winter long!). Whether you give them as a gift or keep them for yourself these fun to knit socks will put a smile on everyone’s face while they keep feet warm and cosy.

Matching socks, hat, fingerless gloves, and cowl are available separately in my pattern store or you can save by purchasing the complete set as one collection.

Method: These stranded colorwork socks are knit in the round from the cuff down with a round heel and gusset decreases placed on the sole placement of the heel.
These socks can be knitted on dpns, by magic loop, or on a short circular (in which case you will still need dpns for the heel and toe decreases).
Please note the colorwork design in this pattern is charted not written out. You need to be prepared to read and work from charts in order to enjoy knitting this design.
