This knit sock pattern, graded to fit most adult sized feet, will help you practice your colorwork and use up some of those yarn scraps from your stash. The socks are worked from the toe up so you can easily make the leg any length you desire. The pattern includes a simple color chart with my recommended colors, as well as grayscale charts you can color and experiment with your own color orders.
These socks have star shaped toes and shadow wrapped short row heels.
This pattern is written in needle neutral terms and can be worked on dpns or circular needles with your favorite small circumference circular knitting method.

My patterns are designed, not just written down, because I want your project to be a success!
Before knitting begins, I sketch ideas, test yarns, stitch swatches, create charts, do math and consider a variety of skills and construction methods. Each pattern uses standard knitting terminology and notations, is edited for technical accuracy and has a logical, easy-to-read format.
I do the work so you can relax and enjoy the knitting.
