Free Fallin’ Socks

What do we love most about autumn? For some of us, it’s the gorgeous leaves fluttering to the ground. For the rest of us, it a chance to get something nice and cozy knit up for the cooler days ahead. This sock fits the bill on both counts.

Long columns of slip stitches remind us of falling leaves as they break up the pooling on variegated yarns. And the easy-to-memorize three-row pattern knits up so quickly, you’ll have socks to wear in front of a cozy fire in no time.
