These socks were the result of playing with yarn and stitch dictionaries. I wanted a stitch pattern that would show off variegated yarn and keep it from being 'ugly'. The Ice Cream Sundae Socks were the result!
These socks are knit from the cuff-down, with either double-pointed needles or the Magic Loop method. They use a heel flap and gusset heel, with an slip-stitch heel flap for additional durability. The instructions are written; the lace pattern is both charted and written. Instructions are given for two sizes.
The sample was knit using Blue Moon Fiber Arts Super Sparkle, a 4 ply Superwash Merino yarn with Lurex blended into the plies. If you are substituting yarn, any Merino/Nylon or wool Sock Yarn will work up well. This pattern is designed to help break up repeats of highly variegated yarn, but solid, tonal, and gradient yarns will also be beautiful in these socks.
The lace pattern motif is both written and charted. In addition, this knitting pattern also has an accessible large print option that is compatible with screen-reading software, which includes the written instruction.
