DESCRIPTION

Emmer Wheat Socks are worked from the toe-up in a softly undulating stitch pattern that brings to mind sheaves of wheat at harvest time. The lace and cables pattern is foot hugging, giving a snug fit. Knit the socks in a solid or semi-solid color and let the lace pattern shine!

The pattern features a gusset-and-flap heel construction that doesn’t require picking up stitches. Right and left socks are identical, perfect for working socks two at a time.

The pattern is written with both metric and US terminology. Both written and charted instructions are given for the stitch patterns.

TECHNIQUES USED

The pattern uses the following techniques: working small circumferences in the round, lace, cables, and short rows. Ability to follow charts is recommended but written instructions are also provided for the stitch patterns. Cabling without a cable needle will speed up your knitting.

The pattern assumes knowledge of some cast-on and bind-off method for toe-up socks; references are given for a couple of alternatives. The pattern also assumes knowledge of working short rows using the wrap-and-turn method.
