    • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

      These top-down socks feature a beautiful textured Daisy Stitch pattern. Choose a self-striping sock yarn like Schoppel Wolle Zauberball Crazy to accentuate this lovely stitch detail. Choose between five sizes as you begin with 2x2 ribbing followed by Daisy Stitches, a garter stitch heel flap and decreases to shape the gusset of the foot. You can easily customize the length of your socks by repeating the 4-row pattern repeat more times for a longer length or simply stop early for shorter socks. Once you experience this easy and fun-to-knit stitch, you can knit the Mingling Daisies Shawl or the Frolicking Field Shawl to create a coordinating Daisy Stitch sock + shawl combo!
