Walden are timeless socks that are worked from the cuff down.
The cuff is knitted in a 1x1 ribbing with twisted knit stitches. On a reverse stockinette stitch background there are travelling twisted stitch patterns on both sides of the leg. Small cables emerge from the upper pattern, lead towards the ankle and transform into small lines that run along the sides of the foot towards the toes. The heels are reinforced by a variation of the slipped stitch heel pattern and a round French heel, giving a perfect fit.
The socks are for adventurous beginners who want to dip their toes into slip stitch knitting but are also fun for the more experienced knitter.
A fantastic allrounder - sourced and produced entirely in Finland from Finnsheep, an old landsheep breed which is very well adapted to the colder climate of Northern Europe. We love it for socks as it's sturdy and has beautiful stitch definition, but you could really use it for anything!
