Les Moutons de Biscotte | Free sock pattern

This sock pattern is a design by Louise Robert originally published in 2012. Les Moutons de Biscotte, which means "Biscotte's sheep" in french, has been knitted hundreds of times since then! Nearly a decade later, the designer of this pattern offers you a reedited version!

This model is worked from the toes up with a short-row heel. The sheep pattern is worked in stranded colorwork which means that the unused yarn follows on the back of the work.

Use two contrasting colors for a neat and beautiful result! ...and be careful not to fall asleep while counting sheep!
