Garden Sprinkles is a simple, textured vanilla sock that works beautifully for highly variegated yarn.
The sock is worked top-down and has a heel flap and gusset, which is the style of heel that fits the most number of people (and my favorite, as well). The pattern has alternating columns of double-slipped stitches which create raindrops of color that float along the sock and help break up any potential color patterning. What remains is a riot of color and texture, just as you might see in an English country garden during a warm, summer rainstorm.
