introducing…Phlox Socks

4 Comments

It’s July 1st, and with that comes two things…

1) It’s Canada Day! (Happy Canada Day)

2) I get to show you the Phlox Socks. So…ta da!

(size small shown above, size x-large shown below)
The Phlox Socks are the pattern I designed for the Robyn’s Nest June Sock Club kit. They feature an optional lace cuff, a flower appliqué with a center bead, a short-row heel and ribbing that flows seamlessly into the lace design. (The ribbing is underneath the lace cuff- so you have the pretty outside and the functional inside).
The pattern is written for sizes small through x-large (7.5″-9″) but due to the stretchability of lace patterns, fits 8.25″-9.75″ and may even fit larger.
The yarn is from Biscotte & Cie (etsy shop here) and is really soft, plus her yardage can’t be beat! I knit one x-large sock and one small, and have enough yarn left over to knit a second x-large sock for a complete pair. The colorway is called Alexandrite in the pattern, but that specific color was exclusive to the sock club.
The pattern calls for a 2.5 mm needle, and is written for both dpns and the Magic Loop method, with specific instructions for each methods when necessary.

Again, the pattern will only be available for sale as of October 1st, but if you email me (or send me a message through Ravelry) I’ll put you on the mailing list with a reminder in October.

  4. Hey, maybe I should get you to fix the info here on this post too (just like Ravelry?)

    African Violet is not Alexandrite, which was for my kit 🙂
