Corundum is the mineral that sapphires are made from. This top-down sock features diamond shaped cables in an all-over pattern.

It has a flap and gusset heel, which can be easily adapted for a higher instep and comes in three sizes. The socks are designed to be worn with 0.5-0.75”(1.5-2)cm negative ease.

The pattern contains written and charted instructions, whichever you prefer to work from. The digital version also contains bookmarks at strategic points to help you navigate the pattern.

Yardage varies according to foot length. The Small and Medium sizes can probably be made with one ball, the Large size may require more than 100g.

Artesano Definition Sock is no longer available as the company has gone into receivership. A good substitute would be West Yorkshire Spinners Signature 4 ply or any similar smooth, solid 4ply yarn.
