Heliotrope ~ PDF knitting pattern

Worked from the toe up, this sock pattern is a juicy one to get stuck into. It’s pattern of leaves, cables and open knot stitches extends neatly up into the cuff and chain-like cables run up from the heel.

Heliotrope socks were designed with Artesano Definition sock yarn, which has since been discontinued, however West Yorkshire Spinners Signature 4ply is a great substitute and they have a similar shade. It’s a really fun pattern to get stuck into, as each repeat is so large, you’re done in no time.
