Create an advent calendar that can be used year after year using this knitting pattern. 

24 mini socks – 12 pairs of differing colour combinations – plus a bonus larger sock pattern for the big day itself!

Use four colours as suggested or choose just two. The pattern also makes an excellent stash buster!
