Not my usual sock type.
But this single colour sock did keep my interest. Stripes of stitch patterns.
This is Dustland by Stephen West and I used using Socks Yeah 4ply in shade 127.
Socks Yeah is a soft merino sock yarn with a smooth finish that makes your stitches pop. Perfect for the textured stitches of Dustland.
The different stitch patterns are simple but effective and make a one colour sock more interesting to knit.
This sock has a fold back cuff. The pattern has you casting on as normal and then knitting for 13cm (this took me aaaagggggesss) and you then fold in half and knit the stitch on the needle with a picked up stitch from the cast on edge.
I love the effect of a folded cuff. Very squishy. But I found the method a bit of a phaff and I think I would have been better doing a provisional cast on instead. At least then I wouldn't have to question if I was picking up the correct stitch. The stitches on the cast on edge are quite tiny.
I loved the garter stitch heel flap!
We have lots of colours in Socks Yeah 4ply. You will need 2 hanks (100g) for most sizes of these socks.
And if you like the stitch patterning on Dustland... there is a whole range of Dustland patterns featuring a similar effect.
A stunning yarn, CoopKnits Socks Yeah is perfect for socks and so much more!
This classic 4ply weight produces finer socks, and the wool/nylon blend gives warmth, elasticity and durability, as well as moisture wicking properties. And it’s machine washable too!
Made with a superwash merino, Socks Yeah has great stitch definition and softness and a HUGE colour range. Great for socks that have cables or lace stitch patterns, or colour work where you make the colour choice. But it’s not just for socks! You can use it for accessories and garments, including for babies if you want it soft and machine washable!
