Chains formed with slipped stitches swirl around the leg and across the instep of these socks. The easy slip-stitch pattern helps to break up the pooling effect of variegated yarns, while it still creates a knock out pattern knit in a semi-solid colourway.

The pattern includes three sizes: Women’s S, M and L to fit leg circumference 16.5 (19, 21.5) cm 6.5 (7.5, 8.5)“. Leg length including heel results in 19 (23.25, 26) cm 7.5 (9.25, 10.25)“ when knit as given in the pattern, adjustable. Foot length is adjustable.

You can choose to work the slip stitch pattern either from the charts or the written instructions.

Material: 1 skein of fingering weight yarn with a yardage of approximately 400 m (440 yds) per 100 g.
Notions: 3 stitch markers, one of them removable; cable needle; darning needle.
