Socks on Saturday: Red Robin Socks by Helen Stewart

Each Socks on Saturday highlights a sock pattern that you can use to knit yourself a pair of socks with Ewe Ewe Fluffy Fingering yarn.

I love to browse through Ravelry to come up with knitting patterns that people can use Ewe Ewe yarns to make and these Red Robin Socks just kept drawing my eye. They look so cozy!

Helen Stewart of Curious Handmade designed the Red Robin Socks to be reminiscent of the friendly red robin poking around in a springtime garden. The stitch pattern looks lush and the colors tell the story.

I think the combination of Fluffy Fingering in Wheat with Red Velvet accents would look perfect but these socks would also look great in any color combo! I found a few alternative colors that we could try.

I thought this gray pair by WillowGroveKnits on Ravelry looked great. We could do Red Velvet for the top with Brushed Silver on the ankle and foot.

What if we go for the robin’s egg instead? I love traceyrr’s brighter pair and we could use Aquamarine and Saffron Fluffy Fingering yarn to get this kind of look.

Or take a cue from the original and grab that Red Velvet and Wheat!
