Cloud Nine Socks
This pattern appears in Jenny Lord’s Purls of Wisdom Book published by Penguin.
Ever wanted a pair of socks to make you feel as if you are floating on Cloud Nine when you are wearing them?
I wanted to design a pair of socks especially for the requirements of Skein Queen yarn, Plushness given that it is a thicker-than-normal sock yarn - more like a DK Light.
Cloud Nine seemed appropriate, given that Plushness knits up into a dense, cosy, warm fabric and also the pattern works on a repeat of nine stitches. The lacy pattern contributes to the light, airy feel of the socks without them being too thick on the body. These are a cuff-down design.
Note: there are two cuff designs - the pattern is for plain ribbing. Picot edging now included in the pattern.
