Sophie Socks

It is another sock club sock to share with you!  This time it is for the Knit Magazine sock club out of the UK.  And how lucky am I?  I got to design with the elusive Wollmeise!

The design I came up with is a pair of knee socks called the Sophie Socks.  The true color of the Wollmeise is so hard to capture — brilliant, vibrant, and fun!

The cuff of the socks is a very elastic ribbing.  Once the ribbing is complete, leg shaping starts.  So does a pair of mirrored rope cables running down each side of the leg.  The heel flap returns to ribbing, and one rope cable from each pair runs down the instep.  I am quite pleased with the result and will be knitting myself a pair with my bonus skein of Wollmeise!

This pattern is currently exclusive to Knit Magazine sock club members.  It will be widely available Spring 2012.
