Knit your own Peppermint Sticks Tube Socks using these clearly-written instructions by knitwear designer Jackie E-S of HeartStrings FiberArts. This is a digital edition of the original in-print pattern instructions, now available in downloadable pdf format.
Peppermint Sticks Tube Socks or easy-to-knit two-color socks. The spiraling stripes give these socks a peppermint twist. No grafting needed for the spiral decrease toes and no heel shaping either! You can choose to make your socks the same or right-left mirror images (instructions included). Or even switch around the colors from one sock to the other.
Make several to keep on hand for unplanned gifts, since the adaptable tube shape fits any foot length.
