Swedish Fish Socks -- catch and RELEASE!

It's true -- the pattern for the Swedish Fish socks has been released into the wild!Grab it here on Ravelry, or here in my Etsy shop!

And in case you'd like to know a little bit more about this fishy footwear, here's some more info:

Little fishes swim back and forth on these fun, unique socks. These are the perfect (and cutest) introduction to colourwork socks if you’ve never tried them before!

Use as many or as few colours as you like for your socks! This would be a great way to use up odd bits of sock yarn.

The pattern is a clear, concise, 4-page .pdf file with large charts and images.

Size: Women’s Medium (or any foot/leg that is 8” in circumference.)

Gauge: 8 stitches = 1 inch (2.5 cm) in Stockinette st.

Yarn: 2 skeins of Knit Picks Gloss (231yd / 50 g) in Dolphin (Main Colour – MC) and 2 skeins of Knit Picks Essential Kettle Dyed (231 yd / 50 g) in Bordeaux Kettle (Contrast Colour – CC), or any other comparable fingering weight yarns in a comparable weightthat compliment each other.

Needles: One set of five (5) double pointed needles in US 2 (2.75 mm) or size necessary to obtain gauge.

Notions: A stitch marker to mark beginning of round (optional,) and a sewing needle to weave in ends.

Skills Needed: Increasing and decreasing, knitting in the round, stranded knitting, twisted stitches, and chart reading.

Have fun with the fishies!
