Sweet Dumplin' Socks
Sweet Dumplin’ Socks
Designed by Rachel Brockman
The Sweet Dumplin’ socks are inspired by the season. Pumpkin pies, squash, hot apple cider, brilliant foliage, sweater weather, and the familiar crunch of leaves beneath your feet – all things that make autumn a sure favorite. As the weather begins to turn, there is no better way to stay cozy than with a pair of handknit socks.
This pattern was part of the Bella Cash Socktober Mystery Knitalong 2020. You can find blog posts about the individual sections below.
