Knitted DROPS Christmas Socks Pattern

Hello, KUTD-ers! Happy Wednesday, and one day closer to Christmas. Are you ready? I thought that these festive knitted DROPS Christmas Socks would be the perfect inspiration to get you into the holiday mood.

For this project you will need size 8mm needles as well as a 6mm crochet hook. The crochet portion is worked at the end to add the fluffy border. You’ll probably want to pick up both red and white yarn –the pattern calls for the foot to be done in red Eskimo yarn (a thick solid yarn) and the border is done in a loopy mohair blend by DROPS called Puddel. You could substitute in comparable yarn weights and types for your project if you don’t have access to these otherwise. The gauge is 11 stitches x 15 rows = 10cm x 10cm swatch.

I like how festive these socks are — they really scream “Christmas!” in my mind. It must be the soft and fluffy trim that reminds me of the fur trim of Santa’s coat. You could always add a small jingling bell or other cute item to hang from the cuff of these. They’d be perfect to wear on Christmas Eve or Christmas day, and would make a lovely gift at the holiday parties you’re attending this season.

See you next week with some more FREE KUTD-able pattern suggestions! Have a great week :)
