Knitting Pattern: Wintermint Sock Trio

Free Knitting Pattern: Make a trio of striped, red, green and white knit socks to share your Christmas spirit!November is here and for me that means it is officially sock knitting season. I adore hand knit socks. I love to make them. I love to wear them. I love to give them as Christmas gifts!

This is a kind of unconventional knitting pattern because it makes three "mismatched" socks. They are a stripey and fun way to show some holiday spirit.

These socks should comfortably accommodate an averaged sized woman's feet (foot circumference of 8 inches and foot length of 8 1/2 inches), approximately US 6-9 shoe size.

Except for the heel flap, turn heel and toe, the sock is worked by alternating yarn colors every round. Begin by alternating colors A and B for 12 rows, then A and C for 12 rows. Repeat.
