I'm totally up for adorable Halloween around here!
When I came across the Happy Haunts free sock knitting pattern on Ravelry, I KNEW it had to make it on a Socks on Saturday blog post.
These cute little color work ghouls coordinate so well with my Ghosts + Widows Hat and I think it'd be so fun to have a full ghosty set!
YES! How fun is this set?! I think it needs to be knit right now.
I'm so excited, I pulled together some different Fluffy Fingering yarn color combinations that would work perfectly for these spine-chilling socks. Take a look!
Colorway 1 – Midnight
As dark as night, Fluffy Fingering yarn in Black Licorice is a good, solid black making it an exceptional backdrop for the Happy Haunts. Add a skein of Vanilla for the ghosts. Work the toe, heel and ankle in acidic Citrus Pop!
Ewe Ewe yarn to buy: 1 skein of 99 Black Licorice, 90 Vanilla, 43 Citrus Pop Fluffy Fingering yarn.
Colorway 2 – Mysterious
Like a misty night when you can feel the dew settling in, soften the colors to an eerie feeling. Use Charcoal gray as the backdrop for Vanilla ghosts. Add a dash of golden Saffron as the torches you can see off in the distance.
Ewe Ewe yarn to buy: 1 skein 98 Charcoal, 90 Vanilla, 30 Saffron of Fluffy Fingering yarn.
Colorway 3 – Mystical
Rich and powerful, purple's blend of calming blue and vibrant red make it a magical color. Mix it with a dash of Brushed Silver accents highlighted by bright Vanilla ghosts for a mythical set of socks.
Ewe Ewe yarn to buy: 1 skein 83 Iris Blossom, 90 Vanilla, 97 Brushed Silver Fluffy Fingering yarn.
Which colorway will you choose?
All would be so good!
