  • Garden Sprinkles sock pattern

    A free sock pattern to introduce you to my style of knitting creativity.

    Garden Sprinkles is a simple sock pattern that gives you a taste of what it's like to knit with me. The pattern has:

    • A little story with the pattern's "why"
    • Clear, line-by-line instructions that have been tech-edited, plus an easy-to-follow chart for more experienced knitters
    • Beautiful photographs
    • Helpful schematic
    • Multiple sizes to fit most feet, from narrow to standard to wide
    • Links and hashtags to connect with me and my knitting community of quiet progressives

    Garden Sprinkles socks  are worked top-down and have 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.

    Garden Sprinkles is free. To download a copy, just add it to your cart and check out. The download link will be on your shop receipt.

    If you use Ravelry, you can add the pattern to your library here.
