Gneiss Colourwork Socks
These socks require intermediate to advanced knitting skills
They are worked in the round on a set of double-pointed needles, beginning with K2 x P2 rib cuffs. The leg is worked using stranded colourwork and stripes.
The colourwork is worked in a spiral, which means it is very easy to knit because you don’t need to think about where you are in the pattern. The slipped-stitch heel flap construction provides durability and a nice fit.
There are 3 sizes: Small (Medium, Large)
Leg length from ankle approx 19cm
Foot length approx 21 (23, 25) cm
The socks come in 3 sizes: Small (Medium, Large)
Finished leg length from ankle approx 19cm or 7½ins
Finished foot length approx 21 (23, 25) cm or 8¼ (9, 10) ins
These measurements may be adjusted but be aware that you may need more yarn if length is added to the leg or foot.
