Do You Want To Build A Snowman?
This is a top-down, colorwork pattern with a heel flap and gussets. There are two sizes available - 72 sts and 80 sts. You can also adjust sizing by choosing lighter/heavier fingering yarn with smaller/larger needles to get the gauge you need for fit. (Divide the number of stitches in the sock by the circumference of your ankle or foot to find the gauge you need.)
- At 9 spi, the medium sock will be 8" in circumference and the large will be just under 9".
- At 8 spi, the medium size will be 9" in circumference and the large will be 10".
You will need two contrasting yarn colors. I'm estimating 70-80g of the main color (MC) and 50-60g of the contrast color (CC). This is subject to change, and of course is variable based on the chosen size, leg length, and foot length. The CC may be variegated but should not share any colors with the MC. Two sets of charts will be provided - one for a light main color and alternate charts if your main color is dark.
