Graveyard Socks

Color stranded socks worked in a soft, sport weight yarn. The garter stitch heel is worked with two strands of yarn held together for extra reinforcement. The motif started, as usual, with scribbles on graph paper. My son noticed the resemblance to a graveyard, and I can thank him for the naming of these socks.

This pattern costs $6

Gauge: 8 sts = 1″ (2.5 cm) over Stockinette Stitch. The gauge in the colorwork section should match or be looser than the gauge in the stockinette section.
