I’ve been sock knitting of late. I get a lot of pleasure from knitting these fast and portable projects. Especially in 8ply as they work up fast.
This pattern is not for a beginner. As the techniques used are advanced.
- Magic loop
- Judy’s magic cast on or figure 8 cast on
- Stretchy bind off. I use the Icelandic Bind off as I find it doesn’t flare out.
8 ply socks are bulky. I like to wear them with boots or heavy shoes. They are also suitable as bed socks.
I knitted two pairs from a ball of Patons Sierra. One for me and one for Peter. Sierra has 20% wool for breath ability and comforting 80% acrylic for wear. I find them comfortable to wear.
I will not be offering any support for this free pattern. If you find the pattern challenging, a google and YouTube search will easily find tutorials on the techniques used.
