This kit is for the Citrus Sunrise Socks designed by Renee Strouts (@rmaliase) for our first pattern collection, Handmade: Slow Fashion Inspired by Arizona's Five Cs!
Renee's Pattern Inspiration:
Noticing that a striped short-row heel was reminiscent of fruit sections, Renee used that as a jumping off point for these citrusy socks. The motif was turned sideways to adorn the toes and heels alike of these socks with citrus slices.
US 1 / 2.25 mm DPN needles OR circular needles for magic loop
Always use a needle size that will result in the correct gauge after blocking.
