Caramel Sauce (Socks)
by Lisa K. Ross
Can we agree that any time we think of a fall theme, we evoke this caramel color? Fallen leaves, pumpkin spice, carrot cake… When I think of a fall theme, I also think of hand-knit socks, every time. Let’s celebrate that it’s time to get them out of the drawer and enjoy their warmth again.
Once again we've selected Crave Yarn Caravan to pair with this pattern and for our kits we've focused on all the warm, fall-like medium toned colors that say"Fall" and still show off the lace detail on the sock. If these colors don't speak to you, we have more than 30 available in our Caravan open stock assortment.
FINISHED SIZE: Medium (Large). To fit a foot circumference of approx. 8½ (9¾)”; 21.5 (24.5) cm. Shown in size Medium.
NOTE: These socks are designed for sport weight yarn, so even though the stitch counts are not very big, the size of the socks accomplished is medium to large. If you wish to make smaller or tighter fitting socks, you can replace the sport weight yarn with fingering (sock weight) and go down a needle size.
