Description

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! For more information, including materials, gauge, and sizes, please click Product Details, above.

NOTE: This pattern may look new, but it's the same as our original Easy Heel Colorblock Socks pattern, just with new skein recommendations for Posy's new 50-gram skein size!
