Knitting Pattern: Wink and Smile Socks

Free Knit Sock Pattern: Cotton/bamboo yarn and an airy eyelet stitch go together like a wink and a smile.
Some people don't enjoy hand knit socks in warmer weather, but I think you'll agree, a light, cotton/bamboo based yarn and an airy eyelet pattern go together like a wink and a smile. These pretty socks are worked from the leg down and have an Eye of Partridge heel flap, French turn heel and a rounded, star toe.

Many thanks to Skacel for providing the CoBaSi by HiKoo yarn that I used in this pattern. I love this stuff for warm weather socks.

A printable version of the 'Like a Wink and a Smile Socks' pattern, with additional sizing options, is available for purchase in my pattern shop.
