Inspired by a close-up view of a cactus plant, these socks are a wonderful combination of cozy ribbing and an eye-catching stitch pattern. Knit up in a slightly speckled yarn as shown in our sample or as a one-color version, they’ll look super good and keep your feet toasty warm!
The Cacti socks are constructed in the round from the cuff down (on a set of 4 dpns or with a circular needle for magic loop) and designed to both challenge beginner knitters and engage experienced knitters. The pattern features a decorative textured centre panel and an Eye of Partridge heel flap, as well as a heel design that combines traditional Dutch (square) heel and rounded heel techniques for a secure fit. The toe is shaped with decreases at the sides, and finished with Kitchener stitch.
A plastic-free, non-superwash, workhorse kind of sock yarn in the most beautiful range of colors: Meet Schoppelwolle's Alb Lino!
Alb Lino is a blend of 85% German wool and 15% French linen. The linen acts as a natural strengthener and gives the yarn a gorgeous heathered look. The wool is sourced from Wanderschäferei Stotz, nomadic shepherds on the Swabian Alp.
