My Scrappy Socks are the perfect pattern for your next scrappy project or even using up some fun mini skein bundles. This pattern is JAM PACKED with amazing information. You’ll be getting two separate PDF patterns, one that is designed toe up and the other cuff down. You’ll be getting three different heel types for cuff down and two for toe up. I show you how to calculate how much yarn you need for each section and how to calculate how long to make the sections.
This pattern is meant to use up mini skeins. This can be anywhere from a 5 to 10 gram mini skein. Depending on how much yarn you have I will be showing you two templates but please feel free to make these socks your own, use 5 or 40 colours!
How to chose your colours: Have fun with your colours, go with a certain colour theme or change it up using all those extra left over yarns. Just make sure you check the yardage for the mini skeins with the required amount for the size you’ve chosen. Use 1 or 10 different colours, make these socks your own by choosing colour.
Certain dyers also sell fun mini skein kits. If you’re unsure about what colours to use, let them make the decision for you.
