Welcome to our new weekly feature, Socks on Saturday! Since Ewe Ewe Yarns now has Fluffy Fingering in the merino yarn lineup we can make all the wonderful socks you can imagine. Yay!
Each Socks on Saturday will highlight a sock pattern that you can use to knit yourself a pair of socks with Fluffy Fingering yarn. Today is a funky criss-cross color work design called Mosaic Marbles.
This pattern uses a technique called mosaic knitting which means each round is worked with only one color and the changes colors happens by slipping stitches. This intricate design is very easy to knit!
There are tons of Mosaic Marbles examples on Ravelry
Make a lovely subtle pair with Forest Fern and Brushed Silver. So pretty!
