  • Wild Grass - Socks


    The Wild Grass socks are inspired by the microscopic cross cuts of cells which are beautifully represented in the delicate, crescent-shaped lace motif. On the leg, the lace is complemented by tiny bobbles, evoking seed pods!

    The Wild Grass socks are worked from the toe up. The motif is mirrored, with different charts for the left and right foot. The bobbles on the upper part of the leg are created with a crochet hook. The final leg length will vary slightly depending on the desired length of the foot. The socks are finished off with a cuff of twisted ribbing.

    Our Yarn Recommendation for Wild Grass - Socks

    Pattern Details:

    1 (2, 3, 4, 5)

    Finished foot circumference: 17.25 (18.5, 19.5, 20.75, 21.75) cm / 6.75 (7.25, 7.75, 8.25, 8.5)” - recommended to be worn with 3 cm / 1.25” of negative ease.

    Fingering-weight sock yarn

    280 (295, 315, 330, 345) metres / 306 (323, 344, 361, 377) yards

    Yarn estimations are based on the foot length being 22 cm / 8.75” with a leg length of 18.25 cm / 7.25”, like the sample shown. More or less yarn will be required if changing the foot length.

    Charifa wears a size 3 with 0.75 cm / 0.25” of negative ease.

    2.25 mm / US 1 circular needle with a cable length of at least 80 cm / 32” (or needle size to obtain gauge).

    This pattern uses the magic loop technique. The top of the foot is worked across the first needle and the sole of the foot is worked across the second needle. However, dpns can be used instead: work instructions for first needle across 1st and 2nd dpns; for second needle work across 3rd and 4th dpns.

    34 sts x 49 rows = 10 x 10 cm / 4 x 4” (in the round, in stockinette stitch, after blocking)

    40 sts x 40 rows = 10 x 10 cm / 4 x 4” (in the round, in lace pattern without bobbles, after blocking)

    Foot circumference: 17.25 (18.5, 19.5, 20.75, 21.75) cm / 6.75 (7.25, 7.75, 8.25, 8.5)”
    Leg length: will vary, sample shown with 18.25 cm / 7.25” leg length
