Hither and Yon PDF
The Hither & Yon Socks by Cat Bordhi are an easy knit, even if you’ve never added beads to knitting before (the PDF does include a video tutorial). The stitch texture is equally beautiful without the beads, so do leave off the beads if you prefer. The socks shown here feature clear beads on the front (which take on the color of the yarn) and multi-color beads on the back (a surprise for passersby). You could, of course, use one color everywhere. You can choose the toe-up or top-down version, and if you enjoy working two socks at a time on two circular needles or one long circular needle, instructions will show you how to knit any Sweet Tomato Heel Socks two at a time.
