Free sock pattern | Auld Lang Syne
Here's a pattern I am happy to share with you to greet the year that is ending and celebrate the beginning of the new one. Auld Lang Syne is a popular song often heard on New Year's Eve.
This is a song from Scotland passed down from generation to generation and transcribed in 1788 by Robert Burns.
Adulte one size (Foot length is adjustable)

Finally picked up my WIP after the holidays. I loved the pattern and thought what if they were fingerless gloves instead of socks. So I went ahead and closed one off as such and I loved it. The pattern is lovely and the yarn feels so soft against my hand. Done the 2023 right and 2024 will be the left hand. Such a pretty set it will be. Thank you and Happy New Year to all at Biscotte.
i love the pattern, but still working on my halloween socks, this will be next. thank you
have not had time to knit this pattern yet, but it really looks like it will be fun and I am eager to get to it. Thank you for offering free patterns from time to time. I love knitting socks, so I know I will make them.
This is a beautiful sock and the pattern was easy to follow.
