Like a sweet bouquet of colorful flowers, our Striped Crew Socks In Pocket Posy are a lovely pick-me-up during the gray days of winter. To make these beauties, we’ve reprised our classic (and free!) top-down sock pattern, but now in sweet Pocket Posy.
The pattern is basic but thoughtful. Single row stripes in a 1 x 1 rib pattern keep these socks secure around your leg… no slouching! A slip stitch pattern at the heel serves as a nice cushion where you need it, and a stockinette stitch gusset and foot slip right into your shoes.
Pocket Posy’s blend of 75 percent superwash merino, 15 percent cashmere, and 10 percent nylon creates a soft, machine washable, and durable fabric. Hand-dyed colors add dimension and a dreamy, watercolor flow. Comfy and practical, check; fun and easy, yup; beautiful, definitely!
Designed for Purl Soho by Whitney Van Nes.
- Contrast Color 1 (CC1): 3 skeins of Purl Soho’s Pocket Posy, 75% superwash merino, 15% cashmere, and 10% nylon. 79 yards/ 25 grams per skein and approximately 178 yards required. We used Heirloom White.
