Our Easy Heel Colorblock Socks do an ingenious job of avoiding the potentially difficult heel- and gusset-shaping of traditional patterns. Here, you knit the whole leg and foot as a tube, stopping along the way for a couple of scrap-yarn half-rows, which you later pick up in order to knit the heel in the round… Amazing for first-time sock knitters, and anyone else who likes a simple trick! And it’s even knitter’s choice whether you’re a top-down (cuff-to-toe) or bottom-up (toe-to-cuff) kind of person. Our Easy Heel Colorblock Socks Pattern has instructions for both directions and for both kids and adults. Knit up in our wonderfully soft, hand-dyed, machine washable Posy, choose from a bouquet of extraordinary colors, and put just the right feeling in all the right places!

NOTE: If making very long foot for size 9 socks, you may possibly need 3 skeins. If making short foot for size 10 socks, you may only need 2 skeins.
