Yarn estimates are based on a sock foot length of 8½ (9½, 10½, 11½)”. You may need more or less yarn depending on foot length. For the best fit, knit socks ½” shorter than actual foot length.
These socks are knit seamlessly in the round from the cuff down and feature an afterthought heel.
When working the stranded colorwork method, two colors are carried across each row. For most knitters, there is a difference in how colors show up in the pattern that is dependent on how the colors are carried along the wrong side of the work. The float of the dominant color should be carried below the non-dominant color. Typically, and as is the case in this pattern, the “non-dominant” color serves as the background color. The sample is knit with CC held dominant, which helps the Party Flags motif pop out more against the background.
We recommend breaking yarn at each color change to avoid long vertical floats along the inside of your work. You may wish to weave in your ends as you to go to save time.
For your convenience, we have created four separate charts outlining the Party Flags motif. These charts are intended to help you customize your socks in any way you wish! Chart A reflects the colors used in the sample pictured. Chart B shows the motif in two colors: a dark background with a light foreground. Chart C also shows the motif in two colors, but with a light background and dark foreground. Finally, Chart D is fully customizable! Color changes are outlined, but not filled in so that you can color the chart to match the shades you’ve chosen for your project. You may follow any of these charts for the Party Flags motif.
