Inspired by early American quilts, Barn Swallow Socks reflect a vintage, heirloom look. The simple moss diamonds are reminiscent of antique patchwork while the swallow-tail lace side panels mimic the intricate embroidery of many log cabin quilts. These elegantly rustic socks are worked in Qunice & Co. Tern, a gentle blend of tussah silk and pure wool that produces delicate stitch definition with an aged, laundered appearance. These top-down socks are worked in the round in your preferred method and feature a patterned, short-row heel. This pattern is offered in both charted and written form and in three sizes.

Barn Swallow Socks are “very challenging” for the beginning sock maker, and “interesting” for the intermediate sock knitter.
