Easy and fun sock to knit. This is easy enough for a first sock. You will need to know how to knit in the round on double pointed needles, how to slip stitches, and how to pick up and knit stitches. This pattern is made from soft Chameleon Colorworks "Twinkle Toes". This is a nice blend of 50% Superwash Merino, 50% Tencel, (360 yds, 3.5 oz). Chameleon Colorworks colors are fabulous and there are a lot of them from which to pick. This is a top down sock.
