Sweet Dumplin’ Socks
Designed by Rachel Brockman
This pattern is part of the Bella Cash Socktober Mystery Knitalong and will be published in segments each week for the month of October. Please join us for the fun! If you don't want the socks to be a mystery, you can find spoiler images of the pattern at this link.
The Sweet Dumplin’ socks are inspired by the season. Pumpkin pies, squash, hot apple cider, brilliant foliage, sweater weather, and the familiar crunch of leaves beneath your feet – all things that make autumn a sure favorite. As the weather begins to turn, there is no better way to stay cozy than with a pair of handknit socks. And with that said, what could be more fun than socks with an element of mystery and a sampling of stitches?
