Peppermint Mocha Socks - PDF Knitting Pattern
My favourite winter coffee is a Peppermint Mocha. The blend of the minty flavour with the chocolate is so scrumptious.
In this pattern, I have used slipped stitches to create a spiral striping that mimics a peppermint stick.
The stitch pattern is appropriate for an advanced beginner, but will provide a prized pair of socks whatever your skill level may be.
So grab your Peppermint Mocha, your yarn, and your needles and cast on your socks. Happy Knitting!
