Exciting news! One of our favourite yarns – one which we feel should be knit into just about everything because it is so soft, lustrous and all round great – has been knit into bedsocks. Even more exciting is that you can buy the pattern!
They may appear quite simple, but there is a little more going on than meets the eye in our Supreme Bedsocks. Knit in the lovely Alpaca Supreme, these socks are double stranded to create an extra warm and durable fabric! We’ve also played around by combining two different colours in the body of the sock, creating a marl. The cuff, heel and toe are all knit doubling the same colour, for a solid contrast. Three stripes at the top of the leg are knit doubling the opposite colour. We used Porcelain White and Light Silver-Fawn in our sample. Knitting the pattern with two more contrasting coulours would create a bolder stripe as well as marl. It’s all up to you and there are options. Whichever colours you choose to knit these socks in, your feet will thank you for it!
The pattern calls for…
3mm circular needle OR 3mm set of DPNs
2 skeins of Alpaca Supreme yarn in contrasting colours of your choice
