You can have a Carnivale any day of the year with these socks on your feet. This top-down sock pattern combines simple slipped stitch zig-zag cables, coins, and beads to capture the feel of Mardi Gras. While any sock yarn will work, solid or semi-solid yarns in Mardi Gras colors (green, purple, or gold) are suggested. Carnivale has directions for 4 adult women’s sock sizes, extra small, small, medium and large, equivalent to women’s shoe sizes US 6-6.5 (EU 36-37), US size 7-7.5 (EU 37.5-38), US 8-8.5 (EU 38.5-39) and US size 9-9.5 (EU 40-41). Directions include a fitted heel and simple arch shaping.
Directions for working the slipped stitch coins without a cable needle are also available thanks to our very own [hautecontre](person). Thanks Diane.
