Yarn

You need a sock yarn to knit these socks.

I used Malabrigo Yarn Sock for the first samples and my sample knitter used WYS Signature (75 % wool including 35% BFL, 25% nylon) 400 m / 100 g in two colorways

Construction

The socks in this collection are all toe up constructed.
The heel is added later once the leg is finished (afterthought heel).
To best choose your sock, select according to the circumference of the sole of your foot.
The length of the foot and the leg are totally adaptable.
The socks are worn with a negative ease of 0.5 to 1.5 cm (¼ to ½’’).
Please note that stranded colorwork is not very stretchy so choose your size wisely.
A ankle sock adaptation is available for people with thin ankles and calves.
