20 sts and 21 rnds = 10cm (4 in) measured over pattern (knitted in the round), before washing.
Inspired by traditional Faroese skóleistur (knitted slipper-like wool socks that were usually patterned and double thick), these cheerful, warm and woolly socks are designed for both men and women. They are beautifully thick and cosy and will make ideal and much appreciated gifts for any festive occasion.
The Sirri socks are knitted in the round with five needles, from the top down with a short, striped ribbed cuff, an easy to work traditional Baltic pattern, peasant (or ‘after thought’) heel and a wedge toe. The simple charted pattern is worked using the stranded or Fair Isle technique.
