Stumptown Socks

In Fingering weight yarn, Patterns, Shop sample available, Socks, Toe Up by Shannon

This is pretty much my favorite sock pattern ever. The ‘v’ pattern is fun to work, and has a rhythm that moves quickly. There are stockinette and garter versions available, and they both look fabulous with any yarn you can think of, variegated or solid. Adding contrasting toes, heels, and cuffs is easy as pie, and they really do fly off the needles. In fact, I think I need to cast on a pair right now!
