Festive Sock Pattern Roundup

Socks make a great addition to your holiday festivities. They're much smaller than knitting an entire sweater and tuck away into a small space to wait for next year. Here's a list of my favorites: 

1. Christmas Party Socks (free pattern)

 

The "ugly Christmas sweater" turned into socks! Plus, the colorwork is contained to the cuff & just a bit at the toe, so these won't take you months to complete.

 

 

Great for:

  • Solid color yarn
  • Traditional Christmas style
  • Learning stranded colorwork

Recommended colors:

 

2. Oh Dennenboom (free pattern)

Again, stranded colorwork - but with a non-traditional twist! Yes, you could absolutely knit these in traditional colors, but why not pull out a crazy speckled colorway for that background instead? Speckled yarns look like twinkling tree lights!

 

Need socks faster? Only do the colorwork on the cuffs, and knit a plain foot! It will fly off your needles & only you'll know!

 

Great for:

  • Rockin' around the Christmas tree
  • Speckled colorways

Recommended colors:

3. Fred & George Socks

Kick back & relax in this fun pair! Red & green will make a very traditional pair, but I like wild colors for this pattern!

 

Great for:

  • Breaking all the rules
  • Any solid color yarn

Recommended colors:

 

4. Dancing Elves Socks (free pattern)

These are hilarious! Everyone needs some dancing elves in their lives.....and in the their shoes. 

Great for:

  • Keeping you entertained all day long
  • Exploring colorwork styles (stranded, stripes)
  • Any solid color yarn

Recommended colors:

 

5. Fireside Snuggle Socks (free pattern)

Did you leave your socks to the very last minute? Grab a worsted yarn (or better yet, hold two strands of fingering weight together) and cast on your "procrastinator Christmas" socks!

 

Great for:

  • The last minute
  • When fingering weight socks take waaaaaaay too long

Recommended colors:
