I love the big honeycomb stitches that make up the body of these socks. They look so cozy and perfect for fall. I love the way they’re styled up and out of those fresh boots!

I feel like they’d be a fun knit. To get this look you can make them in Fluffy Fingering merino yarn in colors Sky Blue and Vanilla. Or go for a nice woodsy feel with Forest Fern and Brushed Silver? Those would be pretty!


How much yarn do I need?

You’ll need 2 balls of your main color and 1 ball of the contrasting color to complete the socks.

These socks are so cool. I love the stitch pattern that and they way it goes in so many different directions! The Mosaic Marbles would knit up perfectly in Ewe Ewe Fluffy Fingering yarn.

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

Try Fluffy Fingering yarn in colors Citrus Pop and Berry to make a really WOW pair!

Make a more everyday pair in Aquamarine and Vanilla Fluffy Fingering.

Go for a high contrast pair with Charcoal and Citrus Pop Fluffy Fingering yarn.

Make a lovely subtle pair with Forest Fern and Brushed Silver. So pretty!

Welcome to our new blog 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 we’re starting with our latest collaboration with Meaghan Schmaltz of The Unapologetic Knitter.

Meet Stripe It to Me:

These adorable Stripe It to Me socks are knit from the cuff down. They highlight the contrast between a neutral (shown in Wheat) and a pop of color (shown in our new Iris Blossom!). The color work is simple since it’s all worked with stripes and slipped stitches, no pesky stranded knitting in these!

Stripe It to Me is a great pattern to knit for men or women. Choose 2 colors from our new fresh palette of Fluffy Fingering merino yarn.

Try Fluffy Fingering in Iris Blossom with a hint of Brushed Silver. Or what about Citrus Pop with amazing Berry stripes?! Both combinations are great in my opinion. Take a look at the color palette below to choose your favorite colors. You’ll need 2 balls of the main color and 1 of the contrast color.
