No, seriously, these socks really ARE bananas! Aren’t they the cutest things you’ve ever seen?

If you’re here it’s probably because you like quirky knits as much as I do – I have a whole pattern category dedicated to them! But when I came across These Socks Are Bananas on Ravelry their cuteness stopped me in my tracks. Bananas! Come on!

I think you could do a few adorable color combos in Ewe Ewe Fluffy Fingering yarn. Above is similar to the original design and uses Vanilla for the background, Citrus Pop for the banana, Saffron for the stems and Brushed Silver for the heel, toe and cuff.

Or maybe you want to go totally crazy cute and knit colorful pair of wild banana socks. Yes, you do!

What if you did a Berry background, Citrus Pop bananas, Forest Fern stems and Iris Blossom accents?

A richer color traditional sock is possibly your banana of choice. Try a Vanilla background with Saffron bananas, Forest Fern stems and Charcoal accents. Tasty!
