Painting Honeycombs Socks


( / )

Please select all options.

    • This is a pdf knitting pattern.

      These socks are perfect for using mini skeins or leftover bits of sock yarn. The pattern features one main color combined with five contrast color pops. You can use as many contrast colors as you like to customize the honeycomb color pops. The pattern is knit top-down in the round, so you can easily customize the length of the ankle or foot by knitting more or fewer honeycomb stripes. Slip stitches form the playful honeycomb motif, so you only work with one color at a time. Dive into your stash and knit yourself some cozy Westknits socks or gift them to a friend!
