I'm super excited to be launching my first little sock kit and couldn't be happier to have paired it up with these amazing colours from Ducky Darlings Yarns.
These colours will be EXCLUSIVE to Beanie Boat (on this SW Merino/nylon base).
About The Yarn :
A gorgeous super-wash Merino/Nylon mix ... can we all say 'SOCK YARN'? Of course, it's also brilliant for anything that might require a little durability so think mittens, hats etc and you're onto a winner.
100 grams (3.53 ounces)
231 yards (212 meters)
75/25 Superwash Merino / Nylon - Can be machine washed at 30°C. Dry flat. Some bleeding of colour may occur initially.
Please note: This yarn is supplied in a hank which requires winding or balling before use.
About The Pattern :
*** This is a pdf download - you will not be sent a physical pattern **
The Cheuron Sock is a toe-up knit that gets its pattern from the creative use of twisted stitches.
Line by line, written instructions and accompanying charts. Clear enough for a new sock knitter to feel confident tackling.
As this pattern is mirrored, there are instructions for sock 1 and sock 2 - you decide which foot to put them on. (tip, sock 1 looks better on the right foot).
Written for three different sizes. Be sure you are following the right instructions for your sock
As with my Escape Socks pattern, there is yet again much to love here … toe-up construction, seamless gusset, no wrap and turn malarkey, gorgeous heel turn, slip-stitch heel flap, no picking up stitches, beautiful textured pattern using twisted stitches and it’s written for DK so knits up quick …. so, so quick …. I’m not a ‘sock knitter’ so having a quick knit appealed to me.Yarn
- DK, 100g (224m/244yds) more than enough for small or medium
