Socks pattern August Pocus
This owl sock knitting design was written for the Biscotte Mystery Sock Club - August 2012.
Beside the sock pattern, you will need the following to knit this project (also available as a knitting kit)
- 1 skein of Biscotte Yarns – Bis-Sock shown in « Vanille».
- 30g of Biscotte Yarns – Bis-Sock self-striping shown in « Chou, hibou, genou ».
- Circular needle size #US 1.5 (2.5 mm) or size to obtain gauge.
- Cable needle
- 20 beads size 6/0 and a crochet or any other tool bead stitches.
Gauge 32 stitchs = 4 inches in stockinette stitch.
Sizes small (medium, large). Refer to woman shoes sizes 6-7 (7.5-8.5, 9-11).
Notes This pattern is written from the toes to the ribs using the « magic loop » method with half of the stitchs on needle 1 and the second half on needle 2.
If you prefer double pointed needles, you might use them and divide your stitches in two equal halves in order to follow the instructions.
The pattern is sold in PDF format: a link to download the document will be sent by email. Have fun!
UPDATE 2017-03-07 | The pattern charts have been reviewed with corrections and white background was added for easier reading.
I was very disappointed with this kit. My yarn Vanille was all tangled when I tried to roll in ball. I finally gave up trying to untangle and at a later date I will purchase a different yarn to make these socks. I contacted you all when this happened and no one from your company tried to reach out with a solution.
I love this pattern and plan on having a drawer full of these.
