From the pattern cover page:
The pattern stitch of these socks was designed to mimic the look of taffy being pulled as it is readied for its final stages of candy formation. The ribbed stitch also makes a good-fitting sock across a range of sizes.

Have fun picking yarn colors in your favorite candy flavors. You can use a variegated yarn like the model shown here that resembles a “mixed assortment” of fruit flavors. Or choose a solid color yarn to have the look of just one of your favorites.

Thanks to Haven’s Candies for permission in using their taffy pulling photograph that demonstrates the inspiration of this sock design. Visit them in Westbrook Maine or online at HavensCandies.com
