Pattern Description:

I expect a lot of sneaker socks.
They should stay nicely on the feet, while walking in shoes and I don't want them to show too much, when I wear shoes, but when I put the shoes off, then they have to look pretty.

These are the perfect sneaker socks.

When they were done, they looked so pretty I wanted similar ones in the full socks version. if you purchase this pattern you actually get two pattern. The perfect sneaker socks and the similar model for colder days, the Rainbow Heel Socks

The heel is a variation of the Bomerang heel, which enables you to use 4 different colors - a rainbow. it is not as rectangle as the boomerang heel and clings to your heel very smoothly.
The harsh seamlike double stitches on the sides are avoided.
If you want to, you add pompoms to them (pattern not included).

You can use any 4 ply sock yarn and you need 5 double pointed needles.
Since you need 5 colors (5 balls) anyway, I don't mention the needed amount of yarn or yardage.

Feel free to knit and sell the socks where ever you like, but you must not copy or sell the pattern. I would appreciate though if you mention me, GaBoSocks, as the designer.

Let us walk on rainbows...
