When Laura Lough of The Unique Sheep asked me if I wanted to submit some designs for a men’s sock book I immediately knew that I wanted to create a pair of kilt hose! I’m not from a Celtic background, although I have always had a fascination for men in kilts. Once I sat down to finalize the design, one cable stood out above all others for me. The heart cable was perfect to incorporate the increases for the calf as well as a perfect choice for a wedding. The braided cable used for the cuff of the hose was chosen to signify the twining together of two lives in the ceremony of matrimony.

Foot and leg length adjustable to fit.
