Blueberry Gumballs

A charming sock duo of stripes & lace ! Knit top-down & on two circular needles, using centered-at-heel end-of-round. This technique allows stripes to follow every turn, through the heel & heel turn and continue through the gussets all the way to the toe, creating uniform & unending array of stripes & you need not once cut a strand of yarn from beginning to the very end ! Ribbed cuff option included & four sizes to fit x-small thru x-large . These eye-candy socks will very likely have you knitting a pair for everyone in your family this spring & summer !

A charming sock duo of stripes & lace ! Knit top-down & on two circular needles, using centered-at-heel end-of-round. This technique allows stripes to follow every turn, through the heel & heel turn and continue through the gussets all the way to the toe, creating uniform & unending array of stripes & you need not once cut a strand of yarn from beginning to the very end ! Ribbed cuff option included & four sizes to fit x-small thru x-large . These eye-candy socks will very likely have you knitting a pair for everyone in your family this spring & summer !

Gauge: 8 stitches and 11 rounds = 1 inch (after washing & drying flat)
Yarn: Malabrigo Sock, Knit Picks Stroll, or similar fingering sock yarn.

Madelinetosh Tosh Sock and similar regular fingering weight are lovely sock yarns but are a little bit thicker, therefore fabric may be stiffer if gauge is met with smaller needles. Perhaps knit with same needles but make allowance for finished size to be a little bit larger. I say go for it!

Yardage: You’ll use approximately 40 (50, 60, 70)g of yarn for a pair of lace cuffed Penny Candy Socks (shown on cover). You’ll need one ball/skein each of two colors; a Main Color (MC) and a Contrasting Color (CC) will give far more than you’ll use, depending upon the size you knit, & you might have enough for two pairs! Great for left-over half balls of sock yarn you already have in your yarn stash.

Needles: Two US 2 – 2.75mm in 16” length, or size to obtain gauge. Optional: a pair of circular needles two sizes smaller than size to obtain gauge.

I’ve written this pattern for two-circular-needles method, because this is how I knit all things in-the-round. I’ve designated “Needle One” for the instep stitches, and “Needle Two” for all the rest. If you wish to knit with double-pointed needles, or dpns, I suggest using one needle for the instep, and the other two for the heel & gusset, or use two dpns for each circular needle, using four in a set if your set has five.
Just follow your dpns sock-knitting instincts !

Sizes: The following measurements of sock, after washing & drying flat.
Corresponding finished sock circumference: 5.5 (6.5, 7.5, 8.5/9)inches 14 (16.5, 19, 21.5/23)cm
Corresponding finished sock length (approximate): 7 (8, 9, 10)inches 18 (20, 23, 25)cm

    • Hello Nancy ! I really appreciate your praise for my designs 🙂 Which yoke sweater, the blue one with white in the yoke, or the red one ? 🙂 I am presently working on several yoke designs, so if you subscribe to Yarnings blog, you’ll surely be notified when I *finally* finish it/them. 🙂 xx

I'd love to hear what you have to say...
