This free sock pattern is a design by Louise Robert for Biscotte Yarns. She have always been a fan of a storyteller named Fred Pellerin and his crazy fairytales about a small village where he grew up. When sheI created this model, she had in mind his native village called Saint-Élie-de-Caxton, a place where magic still exists ...
These socks are knitted in plain stockinette from the cuff down with an afterthought heel. Biscotte Self-Striping yarn is creating the roads on a green background without any color changes: simply drive one stitch at the time and you will knit along the route! The small houses are embroidered on the socks using the duplicate stitch technique. This pattern can be worked with a set of 5 double-pointed needles or on circular needles.
For double-pointed needles, please divide half the sts on needles 1 and 2 and the other half of the stitches on the needles 3 and 4.
Gauge: 32 sts = 10 cm (4 in) in stockinette stitch
