Please note that this listing is for a PDF knitting pattern and not the finished sock.
Kits for this pattern will be coming in another week or so! Subscribe to my newsletter to be the first to know about them. ;)
The Wonderland Socks are worked from the top down with a merry Alice in Wonderland themed colorwork pattern in the leg, a hard-wearing heel flap and gusset in the heel, and easy stockinette in the foot. Teacups, leaves, hearts, hats, keys, cats and, of course, rabbits! adorn the leg of this sock, and they are just so much fun to knit. (The floats add an extra layer of warmth, too!)

You can knit this pattern with your favorite sock knitting method: Magic Loop, two 24” circulars, DPNs, one 9” circular, or, my personal favorite, three 16-inch circulars.
Knitting with three 16-inch circulars is accomplished very simply by holding 32 sts on each of two needles and working the sts with the third needle; it’s similar to using DPNs with the benefit of the flexible cord. This method also makes it very easy to try on your sock!
If you choose a 9” circular needle, a few extra needles in the size required to get gauge will make it easier to work the heel and toe.
32 sts/44 rows = 4” in single color stockinette stitch
Adjust needle size to obtain correct gauge.
