What better way is there to fight the winter blues that comes from all that grey and dull weather we often have in my neck of the world, than with a pair of happy and bright socks? These dotty socks have been my go-to pattern for quite a while not only to use up some leftover bits, but also because one can go absolutely crazy with the colours if desired. And now there's finally a pattern available: Crazy Dots.
The socks are worked cuff down with an all-over dots pattern in stranded knitting. The included charts don't give any colour suggestions, but instruct where to change the background and motif colours only. You need at least five different colours of fingering weight yarn, but you can choose as many colours as desired to make your socks unique.
The socks in the picture above show six colours and the colours are used in the same place to make a matching pair. The picture below shows socks worked with nine different shades of blue, but only cuff, heel and toe are worked with the same colour. The colours for the background stripes and dots were chosen at random.
The pattern for Crazy Dots, which includes instructions for three sizes, is now available from my Ravelry store, here: Crazy Dots.
