Speckled Eggs sock design by Dana Gervais was written for the Biscotte Mystery Sock Club - March 2018 (in pink). In 2021, it has been re-knitted with a new speckled color: Love Potion (in purple)!
This beautiful speckled yarn featuring fresh, spring colors really reminded me of speckled Easter eggs. This cable pattern on the front of the leg and top of the foot is inspired by speckled Easter eggs.
Speckled Eggs is worked from the toe up and features a rounded toe and reverse stockinette short row heel. Instructions are provided for the narrow circumference with instructions for other circumferences appearing in parentheses; if there are no parentheses the instruction applies to all sizes. Happy Knitting!
