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 and Pocket Posy, choose from 18 extraordinary colors, and put just the right feeling in all the right places! For more information, including materials, gauge, and sizes, please click Product Details, above.
