High Hopes Sock
These socks were knitted using EasyKnits 'Twinkle' Yarn (75% Super wash Merino, 20% Nylon and 5% Stellina) in 'Icicle' - 100g / 400m.
The simple texture design - a version of 'basket weave' stitch, adds just enough interest to a plain sock. The chosen yarn lends itself effortlessly to the sock design - it allows the pattern to 'shine' through - helped, of course, by a bit of added sparkle...
This versatile pattern allows you to use your favourite sock yarn; suggested gauge / tension is 8 stitches per inch measured over stocking stitch using 2.75 mm needles.
Foot length is adjustable, and the pattern has been written to fit 8" (20.5 cm) and 8 1/2" (21.5 cm) foot circumference with finished foot lengths of 23.5 cm and 24.5 cm respectively.
