Pattern Description:

"Merripog" is my Americanized word for "happy kiss." The Gaelic word for "kiss" is "pog," so I just added some merriment. I hope the happy kiss of color makes this a fun knit for you!

These cuff-down socks are a good beginner two-color knitting project--there's just enough color knitting to give you practice, but there are parts that let you rest. The socks feature an afterthought heel and grafted toe.
