Purple Rain Socks (F198)

Purple Rain Socks (F198)


These socks are knitted toe-up with included instructions for the shadow wrap short row heel and the pretty Purple Raindrop stitch pattern.

Techniques include a circular cast-on, increases to shape the toe, and short rows using a shadow-wrap technique (SW-KRL and SW-PLL) to avoid holes. The pretty Raindops stitch pattern is worked on the instep (top of the foot) with the sole stitch worked in stocking stitch.

Check out our Alegria Superpool Kits - these would be a fun yarn selection for knitting up this free pattern!
