Pansy Path Socks

Pansy Path Socks

I was recently presented with the opportunity to design another pattern for our friends at AllFreeKnitting, complete with this Lion Brand Sock-Ease yarn. And, long story short, this is what I came up with - a dainty color pattern that completes a clean design. I also knit one of these bad boys on 9" circulars, which I quite enjoyed (especially with this eensy weensy yarn). Anyway, you'll have to visit AllFreeKnitting to find the pattern for now (link below), but you can find all kinds of pictures right here in the meantime!

Sizes: adult small (adult medium; adult large) (small corresponds to the following US shoe sizes: women's 5 - 7 and men's 4 - 6, medium corresponds to women's 8 - 10 and men's 7 - 9, and large corresponds to women's 11 - 14 and men's 10 - 13)

Yarn: Lion Brand Yarns Sock-Ease (75% Wool, 25% Nylon; 438 yards [400 meters]/100 grams); #100 Marshmallow - one skein (color A), #174 Green Apple – one skein (color B), & #139 Lollipop – one skein (color C) 

A closer view of these little snockerinos.
Needles: one set of double pointed needles (dpns) in size US 1, one set of double pointed needles in size US 2

Notions: Tapestry needle, stitch holder or scrap of yarn for holding stitches

Gauge: 30 stitches = 4 inches in stockinette on size US 2 needles


I know, I know - you really just want the pattern, huh? Well feast your eyes on the photos I've included below and then click through to find out how to make these sweet little guys!

  1. Such great little socks. Love the simple color work. But it makes me nervous that you are standing on pavement in them. :^) (It's the mother in me.)

    1. That's funny! :) Yeah we don't have a lot of great spots for sock photography in the yard... mostly because we desperately need to mow!!!

  2. I LOVE THESE SOCKS! I'm a new follower to your Wonderful Spot in Cyberspace. I'm sooo impressed with your design sense. I've never knitted socks before—I've been pondering diving into a pair, and these are putting me over my fear of starting some. These are so cool. Thank you for all the work and sharing. Happy Holidays.

  3. If I wanted to knit this in just one straight colour, how would the colour rows be changed, if at all?

    1. You mean with no color detail at all, or the color detail being in a single accent color rather than two? For the first option, just knit straight through, of course, and for the second just replace instructions given for color C with color B instead. Does that help? :)

  4. Such an amazing design of hand knitted socks. These socks are simple but too much attractive. I have really liked the design on the legs' place of these socks. Pink and green colored design is giving amazing look. superb!!!
