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.
