In my home I have an anique chair I’ve inherited from my granny Astrid. The cushions are woven in a pattern that always has fascinated me. As a tribute to my cute granny I decided to design a pair of socks with the pattern from the chair.

The socks have a short leg and are knit in the round with a heel flap heel and a gausset. The heel extension is made using short rows. This pattern is written to be knit on a circular needle with the Magic Loop method but if you rather use dpns you can adjust it for your needs.

Three sizes of witdh are available with (56)64(72)sts. The foot of the sock is adjustable and can fit any foot longer than 20cm(8”).

The pattern has been Tech Edited by Bellis23.
A big thank you to all my test knitters!

I hope you will enjoy this pattern!
