Across the Valley Socks
The View Across the Valley is an Irish reel composed by John Brady of county Offaly who won the All Ireland flute title in 1967. A lively tune, it’s sure to get your toes a’dancing!
Three Bavarian, twisted-stitch cable designs come together in perfect harmony in these top-down socks.
The cables are featured on the front and back leg as well as the instep. The heel is worked in an Eye of Partridge pattern while the sole is worked in Stockinette stitch. The foot finishes with a wide toe and final stitches are grafted.
Both charts and written directions for charts are provided. Each size has its own set of written directions for the charts.
