It is hard not to adore striped socks. I loved knitting these striped socks. These socks are made using 2 different sock yarns. one is a dark grey Lang Jawoll Magic and the other is a lovely Hand Dyed Sock Yarn in greens and reds.
I used the dark grey Lang Jawoll Magic for the cuff and toe. The cuff is knit in a k1, p1 rib. The toe is a classic toe.
There are 9 stripes in the leg starting with the hand dyed stripe and finishing with the same colour.
I used wider stripes of 4 rows of hand dyed sock yarn and 4 rows of the dark grey Lang Jawoll Magic.
I used a slip stitch heel flap and chose to continue the same stripes on the heel. The heel flap in 32 rows starting with a row of dark and ending with a hand dyed stripe. I used the dark grey for turning the heel and continued with the dark grey for the start of the gusset.
The gusset stripes flow into the foot stripes. After 16 stripes ending with a hand dyed stripe (which includes the gusset and the foot). I started the shaping for the classic toe starting with a dark grey and then one stripe of hand dyed sock yarn and finishing the toe with the dark grey.
These socks were knit for my sister who loves wearing them.
We photographed these beautiful socks at Inch Abbey which is a gorgeous place. I talked about Inch Abbey in my Blue Fair Isle Leftovers Socks.
