Lilleke Socks Kit by Aleks Byrd


We now offer handy kits of this pattern. All kits include enough yarn to make these socks, a limited edition button badge and a fab project bag to keep it all safe. Happy knitting! We do not stock the pattern ourselves, but you can buy it from Aleks on her Ravelry page, here.

If you’re looking for a sock pattern with a little something extra, then I think we’ve got just the thing! Aleks’ patterns always give us knitters some extra interest and new techniques, and the Lilleke Socks do not disappoint! This sock is knit cuff down, and cleverly adds a simple geometric stripe and floral pattern using roosimine, an Estonian inlay knitting technique. Aleks holds our hands through the entire process, so even if you’ve never tried roosimine before, you’re sure to produce a beautiful pair of socks to keep your feet toasty.

Aleks uses our Exmoor Sock yarn for the main part of the pattern, and then uses two Appledore DK minis for the roosimine. We have created a few different colour combos and we hope you love ’em!
