Floral Facet Sock Collaboration with Twinset & Purl
FLORAL FACET SOCKS by Twinset & Purl
We decided that our beloved sock knitters could not miss out on the beautiful Floral Facet design created for the Botanical Yarn January box. Pick your favourite colours and be creative! Perfect for those little balls of sock yarn we all keep just in case.
The kit includes 1 x 100g merino sock skein in MC and 5 x 20g mini skeins. The kit includes a PDF download of the pattern.
Sizes: 1 (Adult M, 64 sts)/ 2 (Adult L, 72 sts)
To fit approximately 8-inch (20 cm)/9-inch (22.5 cm) foot circumference.
Yarn: Botanical Yarn merino/nylon 4ply sock (75% SW Merino Wool/25% Nylon) 100g/400m (437yds) in the OOAK colour way, MC plus five OOAK mini skeins, CC1-CC5 (20g/85m (93yds).
Needles: 2.5 mm / US 1.5 (or size needed to get gauge) plus needles one size larger for the colourwork if needed. I used a 2.75 mm 9-inch circular needle. Please be aware, the ribbed colourwork and Latvian Braid can produce a tighter gauge which can make it difficult to get the sock over your heel.
Gauge: 8 sts & 12 rounds = 1 inch / 2.5 cm in stocking stitch
I knit my socks on 9-inch circular needles but if you would like to knit them using magic loop the stitches should be distributed as follows:
Needle 1: 32 (36) sts / Needle 2: 32 (36) sts
Where the instructions differ between sizes, those for the larger size will be in brackets.
