Corinne’s Knits Etsy Shop

10 Feb

I just created an Esty shop, here. Until now, my patterns could only be bought from Ravelry, so you might like this option better.

I have just added my first pattern there and will add the rest soon, let me know if there is one you are interested in that is not available in my shop yet and I will add it.

Blois Socks – Pattern Published in Yarn Forward no 35

9 Feb

WARNING: It looks like YF states that W&T stands for Wrap and Twist. This is a mistake from them. The W&T in this pattern is for Wrap and TURN

I can finally share my Blois sock pattern! Today, Yarn Forward released a preview of edition no 35 where the pattern will be published soon, here’s a link of the table of contents for that edition.

And, here are a few pictures of the socks:

If you are interested in the pattern, edition no 35 will be available for purchase in UK shops soon and, online, at this location.

In 6 months, I will be selling the pattern myself and it will then be available on my Designer’s Page on Ravelry.

About the pattern:

The name of these socks comes from the Blois Castle (in the Loire Valley, in France). One of its most famous pieces of architecture is a magnificent spiral staircase. The side twist in this pattern reminded me of this spiral staircase. It is also the region of origin from my mum’s family and I have fond memories of visiting my Great-Aunt there as a child.

These socks with gusset and heel flap are knit toe-up.
