A Rose by Any Other Name

These stranded colourwork socks are knit toe-up, with a traditional flap and gusset, with a striped toe and corrugated ribbing.

Sizes - measured around midfoot
  • Small - 7” (17.75cm)
  • Medium - 8” (20.25cm)
  • Large - 9” (22.75cm)
Gauge
36 sts and 40 rounds = 4" (10cm) in colourwork in the round

Yarn Requirements
100g/400m 4ply/fingering weight sock yarn.  Any that gives gauge should be suitable. 

In terms of the amount of yarn you need, for all sizes I would suggest 100g of main colour; for the contrast you should be fine with just 50g.

I used a solid Regia 4 ply sock yarn for the main colour, and a semi-solid from the fabulous indie dyers Life in the Long Grass (LITLG) for the contrast - its subtle variation, combined with a well contrasting solid, meant that the pattern still shows well. I would recommend staying with a solid for the main colour, but feel free to play around with your choice for the contrast.
