PATTERN DETAILS

Give your feet some sweet fun for Easter time or anytime. Choose a multi-color yarn, solid color yarn, and have fun putting together a random bead mix of some of the colors in the multi-color yarn. Then you're set to make these socks with their mixed bead colors nestled into the solid-color ribbed pattern and coordinating multi-color feet. An extra bonus is the hint of slipped stitches in the arch/instep area hugs foot for a super-comfortable fit. This pattern is dedicated to a dear friend Robin Driscoll. She gave me the initial inspiration for using mixed-color beads on sock leg to match the yarn color in foot of sock (where you can't put beads for a typical wearable sock - although one day I will make an artistic pair of socks with beads all over and name it "these are the socks that try men's soles" [laughing]). Not yet having a name for the sock design, I happened to come across a bag of jelly beans on my snack shelf - those jelly beans reminded me of the medley of bead colors and the happy feeling of these socks. And Robin is one of the happiest and most out-flowing warm-hearted people I know, so the name stuck. Of course, you can choose other colors and name your socks whatever feeling (or food group) they remind you of! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit, purl knitting circularly GAUGE 7 3/4 stitches/inch
