Drawing inspiration from traditional Scandinavian-style colourwork, the Festive Mistletoe Socks feature charming motifs of holly leaves, mistletoe, and snow. The stranded colourwork uses only two shades per round with short floats, making this project accessible to beginners while offering a thoroughly enjoyable experience for more advanced knitters. Once you complete the cuff and colourwork sections, the rest of the knitting shifts into a smooth and relaxing stockinette stitch. Using three seasonal shades of The Fibre Co.โ€™s Amble, these socks will not only keep your toes cosy but also infuse every stitch with the festive spirit.
