Every spring for the past few years, I've participated in the Walk Now for Autism Speaks Event to help raise awareness and money for children with autism. Autism affects 1 in 110 children, a number that has dramatically increased since I began working with children with autism 20 years ago. Each child with autism that I work with is a unique individual and these socks attempt to capture that. The pattern features four different design options for the top of the foot, allowing you to create your own individualized socks. Part of the proceeds of the sale of this pattern will be donated to Autism Speaks.
