Lakritz Socks

7 Nov

Edit:

Lakritz socks can now be purchased directly in my shop on Ravelry and are no longer available in Tangled magazine, which, sadly, does not exist anymore. To purchase them, just click below:

The Lakritz socks were born from my wish to use a self-striping yarn to the max. Yes, horizontal stripes throughout are fun, but I wanted to use them in all sorts of directions to spice things up. Also, I thought it would be fun to start knitting socks from the sole, for a change. Embrace your inner math geek while calculating the stitch counts and measurements for a perfectly customized, one-of-a-kind sock.

If you are interested in knitting these socks but feel intimidated by the calculations, you can download this Excel file that will do all the work for you! Just fill in your measurements in your unit (cm or inches) and it will calculate all the numbers you need for you.

Hiss Socks

24 Apr

The Hiss socks pattern is now published and available to download.



8 sizes included in pattern, to fit the whole family!

Hiss are toe-up socks with a heel flap and gusset. I designed them for my 7-year old boy who is fascinated by snakes. A simple cable goes up the socks, undulating like a snake. They are ideal to use up small leftovers of yarn, as colour A requires little yarn.
