About Gradient Matching Socks Sets
Dyed-to-match gradient socks sets make perfect slow-striping socks. You choose to start from the center of the cake or the outside! If you start with the same color for each sock, you'll have maternal twins - every stitch of one sock matches the other exactly.
About this Size
Small socks - A small socks set has has 2 identical cakes that total 50g of fingering weight yarn. This is the perfect size to make knee socks for children, ankle socks for women's sizes 6-9, and great wrist warmers. If you want larger socks or longer cuffs, look for a "medium socks set" or a "large socks set". We recommend working toe-up socks whenever possible so you never stop knitting before your gradient finishes with a flourish.
About this Color
This is one of our Chromatic Gradients. These colorways are carefully designed to evoke memories of landscapes or films or poems.
*Vampire Boyfriend Chromatic Gradient* fades from a blood red to scab rust, before ending in a dramatic, deep red-black. It would look just as good defending the Hellmouth as it would standing up to the Volterra, or cracking open a bottle of O Negative in Bon Tempes. Care for a bite?
