Product details

The chart for the Brocade Socks was loosely inspired by a pattern called Elbistan Stitch, from Betsy Harrel's 1981 Anatolian Knitting Designs: Sivas Stocking Patterns Collected in an Istanbul Shantytown. In addition to the distinctive colorwork, the socks feature a cuff in corrugated ribbing and a sturdy heel flap worked with the yarn held double stranded.

Fair isle socks are less stretchy than non-stranded socks, and as such they should be made as close to the actual size of the wearer's foot as possible. The pattern includes directions for two sizes (achieved by adjusting gauge and weight of yarn) with notes on customization.
