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.
Sizes: Narrow (7 inches foot circumference), standard (7.5 inches), and wide (8 inches)
Yarn: Any highly variegated fingering weight yarn.
The sample was knit in Western Sky Knits' BFL/nylon base in the "Garden Sprinkles" colorway.

Love this pattern. It's great with varegated yarns
I was so excited to receive my package ! Love my pins,and yarn! Already looking forward to ordering more yarn. Great quality. Exceeds expectations.
I've been too intimidated to try socks in the past, but this sweet pattern proved too much temptation to resist! Wish me luck!
I have not yet knit these but am excited to start.
I have not had the time to knit this pattern----too many patterns and yarn arrived at the same time, but soon. Thank you for the opportunity to knit this pattern
