These socks are constructed in the round from the top down with a contrast textured ribbing cuff. The motif is very simple, but the main feature of this design is the contrasting heel flap and gusset, worked flat with intarsia and finished with short rows. The final length is customisable. The ‘colour wave’ is made by embroidering with the contrast colour to highlight them.
Right now, Color Waves is only available as part of our Issue 7! You can get Issue 7 here.
Yardage estimates are based on a foot length of 22.5 cm / 9’’.
Sample shown is knit in colourways Shell (MC) and Fiachra (CC). Davina wears a size 3 with 1 cm / 0.5" of negative ease.
The yarn originally used for the samplecomes from a dyer whose anti-trans views fundamentally go against our company values, which is why we decided to cease the collaboration with them.
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. However double-pointed needles can be used instead: work instructions for N1 across 1st and 2nd double-pointed needles; for N2 work across 3rd and 4th double-pointed needles.
