The Boba Time! Socks are inspired by the cold drink of our summers in the San Gabriel Valley in California. This drink of our youth settles in layers of beautiful peach and orange hues, and Jen at 626 Yarns has dyed the perfect gradient set, Thai Iced Tea with a bonus Boba mini. Together we have created this sweet, sticky, and super-caffeinated boba knitting pattern to enjoy.

Knit a gradient version to achieve the perfect Thai Iced Tea gradient, or knit a solid with a contrasting mini for plain milk tea with boba. Change the colors to achieve other drinks, such as matcha latte, strawberry milk tea, or taro milk tea. And the world’s your colorwork oyster. The pattern utilizes interesting techniques throughout in short sections, so that it remains engaging and there will be no second sock syndrome here!

A child sized version of this pattern is available.
