Zinnia Socks is sock pattern knitted in worsted weight yarn with a small colorwork detail in the cuffs. They are loose fitting and warm socks to wear in the winter as an extra layer and the best part is they come in size eur 25-46 that is about 3 years – large adult, so you could make matching pairs for the entire family. Which is something I already have done, but it is not so impressive in my case since my husband and I have the same shoe size and we don’t have children. I am however considering making a few as christmas gifts.

Gauge: 20 stitches/10 cm.
Needles: 3.5 mm dpn’s or size that gives you the gauge called for on washed fabric in stockinet stitch knitted in the round.

About christmas gifts, it is about time to start if you are planning of knitting gifts, I knit a few every year and feel that it is best to have them ready before december so that your knitting remain pleasant and you don’t panik towards the end trying to finish everything in time. So If you are like me and like to knit gift, start planning and cast on.
