The Happiness All Around Socks were designed to be easy and fun to knit. They are comfortable to wear and a versatile wardrobe staple. The adaptability of the pattern also makes them great for gift knitting. The name comes from an instrumental song by Audiosphere which is just as elated and uplifting as I hope knitting these socks will make you feel.


The socks are worked cuff down and contain a rib pattern all throughout. The heel is worked in a classic heel flap and gusset construction. This simplistic pattern lets every kind of yarn shine, from monochromatic colorways to speckled yarns. It is a great project for the beginner sock knitter.
