When I visited the mYak studio in New York last year, I was asked by Paola to design a pair of socks in their Tibetan Cloud yarn. She wanted a colourful yet simple design. I came up with the idea to use Slip-stitch colourwork – which might seem more complicated than it really is – in order to showcase the colours in an interesting way. Although you work with two colours to create this eye-catching colourwork, you only knit with one colour at a time. No need to worry about tension, as we do with stranded colourwork.
The pattern is suitable for knitters who are new to colourwork.

Categories:, Composition:

100% Tibetan Wool

Number of skeins:

2 Skeins in Tibetan Cloud Sport / Light DK

1 skein of each colors

Finished Measurements:

XS (S, M, L)

or to fit a circumference measurement at the ball of

the foot of 17.5 (20, 22.5, 25) cm / 7 (8, 9, 10)”

foot and leg lengths: adjustable

Needles:

2.75 mm / US 2,

3 mm / US 2.5, or size needed to obtain gauge.

Both needles are for working a small circumference. Sample made using 80 cm / 32” long circular needles.

Gauge:

27 sts and 44 rnds = 10 cm / 4” over Slip-stitch colourwork pattern,

27 sts and 40 rnds = 10 cm / 4” over Stocking stitch pattern.

Gauge swatches worked on size 3 mm / US 2.5 needles, in the round. For making the Slip-stitch colourwork gauge swatch, work at least 6 repeats of the pattern from chart or written instructions.

Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauges and use exactly the same needles for the swatches that you plan to use for your socks, as the material a needle is made of can make a big difference to your gauge. Measurements taken from flattened but unstretched fabrics, after blocking. To save time, take time to check gauge!
