Cordon - a ribbon worn usually diagonally across the breast as a badge of a knightly or honorary order.

These socks were inspired by some ribbons that sported a fair isle pattern, hence the name choice (it only needs to make sense to me).

This is a geometric pattern that very cleverly hides the jog between rounds. The pattern is written for three sizes. The length of the leg and foot can be customized.

Skills Needed:

  • Cuff Down Sock Knitting
  • Stranded Knitting from Charted Directions
  • Kitchener Stitch
