*Frontosa Striped Socks Pattern -- digital download


Stripes, texture, a little lace, a lot of color mixing potential. Grab two of your favorite Yarn Over New York 50gr half-skeins to make the classic 2-color version. We highly recommend picking a variegated yarn for fun and a tonal or speckled tonal shade to anchor your color theme. We used "Dew Jewels" with "Electropop" for our toe-up sample and "Hippocampus" with "Ocean Flower" for our cuff-down sample.

Creative tip: Try stash busting with minis or scraps, if you like. To do this select one 20gr mini-skein for your toes, heels and cuffs. Then use 4-6 other minis in stripes for the foot and leg.

This pattern contain instructions for both Cuff-Down and Toe-Up construction. Choose your favorite or try both!
