What you will need:• Yarn – 100g Sock Yarn (approx. 365-400m / 400-440 yds) Samples knit in The Yarns of Rhichard Devrieze on the Peppinow base and in the colourways Wintergreen (approx. 65g – 206m/225yds) as the main colour, and Sophisticated (approx. 65g – 206m/225yds) for cuffs, heels and toes.
• Needles –2.5mm (US 1.5) on a Long cable for magic loop (I suggest 40” / 100cm for two at a time knitting). I recommend using one needle size larger than you normally would use for socks as the cable pattern will tighten the fabric of the sock.
Stitch Markers if you wish to mark the beginning of the round.
Cable Needle – however you can do the cable stitches without a cable needle if you are comfortable with that method.
• Gauge – Approx 7.5-8 sts/inch in stockinette
• Size – Socks are sized in a Small (Medium/Large).
Pattern notes:To save on printing if you only need the patterning portion of the sock (if you choose to do your own heel and toe) you will only need to print page 4. If you choose to knit the German Short Row Heel then please check which size you are knitting and then you can print just the page you need for your size.
Please note that as the stitch pattern for these socks will significantly affect the stretch of the fabric I suggest only doing the patterning on the front of the leg to avoid any possible fit issues.
