Little Bit Swings & Roundabouts
Little Bits Swings and Roundabouts is a celebration of the return of seasonal events - specifically the re-emergence of a few floral friends. You should be comfortable with basic sock knitting construction, but the pattern is easy enough for the adventurous beginning sock knitter - if you are comfortable with basic lace and cables you'll be alright. The construction is cuff down combining a lace cuff with knit and purl ribbing where the knit columns have off-set cable sequences that taper off into the instep design. Intended to be a mid-calf sock in height it can easily be customized for shorter heights (how-to instructions included in the pattern notes).
Solid to semi-solid colorways will best display your handiwork. That said, this pattern was tested with a really nice multi-colored yarn with good results - just be aware you may lose pattern definition if your colorway is too variegated.
