Rainbow Socks
Rainbow Socks Presenting the socks to Arlo Guthrie

Basic Skills Necessary:

Pattern Description:

The concept for these colorful tie-dyed looking socks came from a friend who is an avid Arlo Guthrie fan. The socks are easily fitted and comfortable wearing because of the simple ribbed stitch pattern that I designed for a good amount of elasticity. The slipped stitches also add a bit of design interest while nicely breaking up the variegated yarn colors.

  • size US 4 / 3.5 mm needles
