Biscotte Yarns is pleased to present the new stocking pattern designed by Louise Robert knitted with yarn from the PatricKnits Signature Collection.
"This pattern was inspired by the yarn itself: The PatricKnits Signature Collection is a yarn designed by a man who seeks the opportunity to excel at any occasion. For him and all those who love a challenge, here is the Stoïque pattern." - Louise
In addition to the pattern, you will need the following materials to knit the Stoïque socks:
- 1 skein of PatricKnits collection signature [85% merino, 15% nylon, 400 meters per 100g skein] shown in the color Merci
- Circular needles or double-pointed needles of 2.5 mm; or size needed to obtain gauge. ATTENTION : if you choose double-pointed needles, note that they must be long enough to support a total of 144 sts.
- Stitch markers
- Tapestry needle
- Waste yarn
ADULT SIZE: Circumference (unstretch) : 18 (20, 22) cm; 7 ¼, 8, 8 ¾ in, Foot length is adjustable
GAUGE : 32 sts = 10 cm in stockinette stitch
NOTES : This pattern starts from the heel and gradually increases to cover the ankle and closes in front of the foot. No matter what size you choose, the heel and ankle are knit the same way and the difference in sizes is realized when you knit the foot and leg.
The concept of knitting from the heel out in both directions is hard to grasp but the instructions are well written with diagrams. If you just go step by step it is pretty easy.
The pattern was a little hard to follow, and the heels were a little bunchy, but it shows off variegated yarn beautifully. If I was better at understanding the pattern, I think it’d be lovely.
I love the pattern, I think I understand most of it and it will be my next project. Thank you for this great pattern.
This pattern ist magic! Easy to follow except the stiches at the span (bit confusing, but manageable), also I added some k2tog at the heel and before knitting the toes for better fitting. Super, super, super pattern, thank you!
Love this pattern
