Painted Sock – new!

A perfect pair! The cute and convenient cakes of color each make one sock. A fun new option for your favorite sock or shawl pattern!

Your pair is certain to be a gradient success story since the color is split identically between the two cakes. Knit both socks the same, or start one from the outside of the cake and one from the inside to reverse the color change from toe to cuff.

Painted Sock Yarn is a great shawl yarn too! Create wonderful effects by mixing each colorful cake with a solid color or playing with long color changes and mirror effects in your favorite shawl pattern.
