Chocolate Bunny Socks: These were inevitable given my love of rabbits, both the animal and the chocolate kind! I started off with the lilac and pink as pretty colors reminding me of spring and picked the dark brown from my stash as a good contrast. By the time I got halfway down the first leg the deep brown was reminding me of chocolate bunnies and the name stuck in my head.

The Muddy Pig socks: These were created for my daughter. Since she was about three years old she has adored pigs (she is 25 now and the piggy love continues!) so when I started thinking about animals on socks I knew pigs would be near the top of the list. She was also the kind of little girl who loved playing outside splashing in puddles with her wellies on, so of course they had to be muddy pigs for her!


Method: These stranded colorwork socks are knit in the round from the cuff down with a round heel and gusset decreases placed on the sole. They can be knitted on dpns, short circular (you will still need dpns for the heel and toe decreases), or by magic loop.
Please note the colorwork design in this pattern is charted not written out.
You need to be prepared to read and work from charts in order to enjoy knitting these designs.

Size: Foot circumference 8” (20.3 cm) Ladies UK 5-8.
Although these socks are written for one size this is adjustable to a certain degree. There are tips on how to achieve this within the patterns. Please bear in mind that any changes to size or tension will affect the amount of yarn required to knit these socks.

Yarn: At least two contrasting colors of any 4 ply (fingering) sock yarn with which you can get gauge. The amounts of each color required will depend on how many colors you pick and where you choose to use them in the sock. As a guide:
