Dancing Droplet Socks

Please select all options.

    • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

      These top-down socks feature a fun droplet stitch technique, producing textured details along the leg and top foot of the sock. This technique is ideal for variegated yarns because it creates little bursts of color when you work the droplet stitch technique. Choose a fingering weight color pop for the cuff, heel, and toe to coordinate with your main color. This pattern is ideal for showcasing those colorful collectible single skeins of sock yarn. Cast on and let your yarn shine!

      Size 3 shown on a size US 13 / EU 47 size foot that has a 10.5″ / 27cm foot circumference. The sock fits with about 1.5″ / 4cm of negative ease.

      Socks are designed to fit an actual foot circumference of 8 [9, 10, 11, 12]″ / 20 [23, 25, 28, 30]cm. The socks are designed to fit with negative ease. Choose a size with a finished foot circumference measurement that is approximately 1″ / 2.5cm smaller than your actual foot circumference, so that the sock will fit nice and snug on your foot.

      The lengths of the cuff, ankle, and foot are easily customizable by knitting more textured pattern repeats for a longer ankle or foot or fewer textured pattern repeats for a shorter ankle or foot.
