Samhain (or Halloween) is an ancient Celtic festival associated with bonfires and marks the beginning of winter and the Celtic New Year.
Twisted stitches and intertwined cables in these socks are reminiscent of smoke tendrils rising up from a fire, and also echo the Celtic inspiration behind these socks.
Offered in three sizes, and in either toe-up or cuff down options this sock pattern has something for everyone. If you are a beginner - why not try just a central cable motif rather than the all-over pattern.
I’m not going to lie to you - this sock does have a lot of twisted stitches but I believe that it gives a fabulous definition to the cables and gives fantastic texture.
Why not join the Samhain KAL over on the Solstice yarns thread and tag your project #samhain so we can all share the love.
