Pattern: Jellybeans & Pixie Sticks pdf file
Needles: Size 1 (2.25 mm) double-point needles (pattern can be easily modified for other circular knitting methods)
Yarn: About 230-450 yards of any fingering weight sock yarn
Sizes: Women and Teens (customize easily to your foot length)
Notes: It has been far too long since I last wrote a pattern! Inspired by the striped colorway “Jellybean.” I wanted to create a design with rounded shapes. By now it’s probably pretty obvious I love to do bands of twisted stitches in my designs. Together they created this sweet design just in time for Easter knitting. 🙂
I worked the same pattern in two different ways to help give you a better idea of how your own completed project will look. The striped sock was created with Knit Picks Felici. I worked the cuff to 3 inches. For my size 8½ foot, I knit to just over 8 inches before doing the toe. The blue sock is done in a Knit Picks Stroll Tonal. I worked the cuff to 6 inches and knit it to 7¾ inches in the foot for my mom’s size 7.
