Soft Spots

Soft Spots feature a simple and graphic colorwork design: polka dots. These toe-up socks are designed to have a colorwork pattern with short floats that do not need to be caught.


Gusset increases are hidden away on the bottom of the sole to make the polka dot design flow uninterrupted on the foot. Stitches are increased above the heel flap for better fit: the wider leg ensures the socks will go smoothly over your heel. Toes, heel flaps, and cuffs are worked in the contrasting color for bright color pops.


Soft Spots are worked from the toe up in two colors of sport-weight yarn. The socks are available in two sizes: 48 and 64 stitches.


The pattern is written with both metric and US terminology. The stranded colorwork pattern is charted only.
