HeartStrings' Pulled Salt Water Taffy Socks
stitch pattern was designed to mimic the look of taffy being pulled as it is
readied for its final stages of candy formation. The ribbed stitch also
makes a good-fitting sock across a range of 3 sizes. Knit in one skein
of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock.
Have fun picking yarn colors in your favorite candy
flavors. You can use a variegated yarn like the model shown here that
resembles a "mixed assortment" of fruit flavors. Or choose a solid color
yarn to have the look of just one of your favorites.
