Ooh it’s about time for a new pattern design isn’t it?! I’ve been so busy recently I hadn’t realised it had been so long since the last one – I swear being in a bubble of publishing seems to make time speed up sometimes, when we’re constantly on deadline and trying to get ahead for the next one! We do love it so though..

I actually wrote this knitting pattern around Christmas time, but it was decided that it would go in our special bumper edition of The Knitter Issue 100, so I didn’t complain! The socks are knitted in Coopknits Socks Yeah!  which comes in 10 awesome colours and I love them all equally.

Using Judy’s Magic Cast On, the pattern is knitted toe-up, with a 4-row lace repeat worked across the instep. After you have turned the heel you get to mix things up a bit and knit some cables up the leg. This makes it a fun sock that doesn’t get monotonous – and it obliterates second sock syndrome as the foot section knits up quite quickly.

    I’m really enjoying your patten it is so pretty but I don’t have a lot of experience and the wrap 3 on the instep chart has me foxed. So far google & YouTube ( my knitting tutors) haven’t come up with a sensible answer. The plan is to bravely press on with a best guess and perhaps have a different sock! If you could explain it or point to a good tutorial that would be awesome though.

      Hi Kirst
      I’m glad you like the pattern! So when you get to that stitch, looking at the next 3 sts on the left needle, insert the right hand needle into the third of these sts and lift it up and over the first 2 and off the needle. This gives a wrap around the next two stitches. Then K1 into the first stitch, make a yarn over, then K1 into the second stitch.
      I hope that’s a bit clearer!
      Faye
