For all those who love felines 😻, you will fall in love with Louise Robert's new model, knitted with La Bis-Sock Autorayanteᵐᶜ.
"As you probably already know, at Biscotte Yarns we LOVE cats... So the beautiful Cornish Rex named Stella quickly drew our attention on Instagram with her twocolored face. In addition to this rare and impressive phenomenon, we
also discovered that Stella doesn't live very far from our dyeing workshop! That was all it took to inspire us this project and introduce you to the beautiful @Stellatwofacecat" - Louise Robert
IN ADDITION TO THE KNITTING PATTERN, YOU WILL NEED THE FOLLOWING MATERIAL TO KNIT THE TWO FACE CAT STELLA SOCKS:
- Biscotte Yarns | Bis-Sock Self-Striping Autorayanteᵐᶜ [85% merino sw, 15% nylon, 400g /100g] STELLA LEFT (A) – 50g & STELLA RIGHT (B) – 50g - It is also possible to get the Knitting Kit just HERE!
- Circular or DPN needles of 2.5 mm #US –1.5 (or size needed to obtain gauge)
- Waste yarn for the heel setup
- 1 tapestry needle
SIZE: adult one size (foot length is adjustable)
GAUGE: 32 sts = 10 cm (4 in) in stockinette stitch
NOTE: These socks are knitted from the cuff down with an afterthought heel, which means that the heel is worked at the very end. 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.
GOOD KNITTING! ♥
This yarn is a perfect representation of Stella, the Two Faced Cat. We had a cat, PD, ( short for Princess Diaries- named by a 6yo). with similar markings but she was more muted. We presently have a dog named Stella, so I HAD to buy this kit.
Behind in reading my new patterns. Looking forward to trying it!
I've yet to knit these, but I have looked over the pattern several times. This is an awesome and fitting knitting pattern for a pair of socks that perfectly reflects its inspiration -- that of a beautiful, two-faced cat named Stella. I can't wait to make these! <3
very nice !! a cheerful gift for everyone
