Heart Themed Sock Pattern Round Up
I'm all about holiday themed socks this year. So far, I've knit socks for Thanksgiving, and Christmas....now it's time for Valentine's day. Let's celebrate love with these lovely heart themed patterns!
1. Unelma onnesta (free pattern)
Don't let the Finnish title scare you - this pattern also comes in well-written English and works up super-fast. I had my first sock cast on and cast off in 2 days. A little bit of detail makes a huge impact in this pretty pair. I used a 30 gram accent skein and less than 100 grams mail color on my project.
Great for: a quick knit, introduction to colorwork.
2. Sweetheart Socks ($2.99)
Columns of great big hearts adorn this pair - as well as "love" being knit in near the toes. Industrious & faithful knitters have been knitting in the name of their beloved, too!
Great for: showpiece knit, colorwork adventures, mini-skein packs
3. Pixel Socks (free)
Easy, peasy, pumpkin squeasy! A perfect introduction to two color, stranded knitting. Shown in two solid colors, I also think this would look amazing with one solid + one variegated skein.
Great for: intro to colorwork, variegated yarn, mindless knitting
4. Herzicolor Socks ($5.50)
Look at this amazing sock construction! It's so different - and allows the heart motif to flow around the ankle. I don't know about you, but I want to knit this pattern just to see how the heel construction works up!
Great for: novel knitting, hidden love, colorwork adventures
5. V for Valentine (free)
Adorable! A couple of little, lace hearts adorn the ankle for an understated look. These sweet socks are great for February, but versatile enough to wear all winter.
Great for: easy, fast knit; solid to lightly variegated colors
That's it for the Valentine's Day pattern round up. Pick your favorite, and let's cast on!
