Gavl Socks Kit
We now offer handy kits of this pattern. All kits include enough yarn to make these lovely socks along with the pattern, a limited edition button badge and a fab project bag to keep it all safe. Happy knitting!
The Gavl Socks pattern is designed by our friend Alice Sleight. Click here if you’d like to buy just the pattern, without the yarn.
Gavl explores the clean linear qualities of half twisted rib and combines them with simple stocking stitch for an engaging project with a minimalistic look, the perfect canvas to show off your yarn. The heel is worked with short rows, to create a smooth feel and an easy-to-memorise construction, perfect for knitting on the go.
Gavl socks are worked in the round from the cuff down and are finished with a grafted toe.
