It's hot outside and time for an easy summer knit! Let the fun yarn colors in the Watermelon Slice Socks Kit do most of the work, and you'll have some cool new socks before you know it! These Watermelon Slices are constructed toe up, starting with the custom-dyed watermelon rind. The foot and leg of this design feature a simple stretchy stitch pattern that you can speckle with watermelon seeds as you knit. This pattern uses our favorite no-flap gusset heel, and is topped off with some more watermelon rind around the cuff.
This pattern is written for three widths, and the instructions are provided in text and chart for DPN, Magic Loop, and Two Circular Needle methods. Recommended needle size is US 1. Beading is optional in case you prefer seedless watermelons.Kits Include:
Sock-aholic® II is dyed by hand at our brewery using a super soft and smooth 4-ply Luxury Sock Yarn made from 75% Superwash Merino and 25% Nylon. Each skein contains approximately 470 yards, and knits at a gauge of 7-9 stitches per inch using size 1-2 needles. This yarn maintains beautiful stitch definition when used for pattern stitches, is strong enough to support lace work, and its softness makes it a pleasure to handle and wear.
Washing Instructions: Hand washing in cool water is recommended to prolong the life of any hand-knit or hand-crocheted item. This yarn may also be gently machine washed in cool water. Roll in a towel to remove excess water (do not twist or wring), and lay flat to dry away from direct sunlight.

This kit is awesome! I made the watermelon socks and had no problems. These were my first socks that I made. Everything was included except the needles. I love these socks and this kit made it a breeze and the price is awesome considering the watermelon fizz is 20 dollars. Awesome I bought two kits.

Everything about this kit is awesome! From the packaging down to the matching watermelon stitch marker. The pattern is well written and easy to follow.
Everytime I wear my watermelons I get tons of compliments.
