Knit your own Rainbow Socks using these clearly-written instructions by knitwear designer Jackie E-S of HeartStrings FiberArts.
The concept for these colorful tie-dyed looking socks came from a friend who is an avid Arlo Guthrie fan. The socks are easily fitted and comfortable wearing because of the simple ribbed stitch pattern that I designed for a good amount of elasticity. The slipped stitches also add a bit of design interest while nicely breaking up the variegated yarn colors.
