Gràdh means love or cherish in Scottish Gaelic and features a delicate pattern mirrored on each foot. The pattern is stunning with speckled yarns and also works beautifully with semi-solid yarns. Knit from the toe up with a gusset and heel flap, they’re sure to make an impression! With three widths and flexible length fitting, these are a great pattern for everyone.
Gràdh is the second pattern in my Socks in Love collection with Mànran, Dìleas, Togair and Gaolach being the other four patterns. You can either just straight in and buy the whole set in one go, or buy a single pattern and get a money off code so you can come back for the collection next time and still not pay more than the £14 maximum price!
Gràdh has four files - one pdf with the pattern for the sock, and a pdf for each size with charts and the written pattern.
The pattern is fully written and charted so however you like to read your patterns, you’re covered! The pattern has been tech edited and test knitted. There’s a screenshot of the pattern, and a list of the stitches used at the bottom of the photos. You will also need to know how to do Judy’s Magic Cast-On and a stretchy bind off like Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind-Off.Materials
