Dip Dye is the latest craze in Denmark! Here is my contribution. Warm, chunky socks worked in the equivalent of DK weight yarn (two strands of fingering held together), they knit up really quickly. The sock is worked in stockinette stitch throughout, then turned inside out to get the subtle dip dye effect.
Note that the pattern is available as both toe-up and cuff-down! Make sure to choose the right file when downloading.

These fun socks can be worked with any color you like. Go for high contrast to make them stand out, or for a lower contrast to make the color changes very subtle. Instructions include a short row heel and an afterthought heel, for you to choose. The pattern is written so it can be worked using the magic loop method, but can be easily worked using DPNs.

Yarn: Lane Cervinia Strømpegarn (70% Wool, 30% Nylon), fingering weight, 150 meters / 164 yards per 50g. Colorways used:
A: Vintage Green 926433 – 1-1-2 skeins
B: Light Grey 585800 – 1-1-2- skeins
C: Dark Grey 525316 – 1-1-2 skeins
or use any fingering weight yarn you like. (Semi)solid colors are recommended!
For size L you can suffice with 4 skeins – however, be aware that the color chance sequence then needs to be adjusted in order to make sure you have enough for both socks.

Needles: 3,5 mm / US 4 circulars, 100 cm / 40 inches, for working magic loop; or double pointed needles.

Other: Tapestry needle for weaving in ends. Optional: 20 cm / 8 inches of smooth cotton waste yarn if working afterthought heel.

Gauge: Sample uses gauge of 17 sts & 29 rows to 10 cm / 4 inches in stockinette stitch.

Size: S-M-L, corresponding to:
Foot circumference around widest part of foot: 17,5-22,5-25,5 cm / 7-8.75-10 inches
Foot length from toe to heel: 18-24-29 cm / 8.75-9. 5-11. 5 inches. Foot length is easily adjusted.



DANSK:
Dip Dye er den sidste nye dille i Danmark! Her er mit bidrag til trenden. Dip Dye sokkerne er varme, tykke sokker strikket i tykt garn, da 2 tråde af et sokkegarn holdes sammen. Det gør også at de strikkes på tykkere pinde, og dermed går det rigtig stærkt!
Sokken strikkes i glatstrik, hvorefter vrangen vendes ud for at vise den subtile dip dye effekt.

Note: Opskriften er tilgængelig både beskrevet fra tåen op og fra toppen og ned! Sørg for at vælge den rigtige fil når du downloader.

Disse sjove sokker kan strikkes i enhver farve du har lyst til. Tag farver med høj kontrast for at gøre dip dye effekten tydelig, eller vælg farver der ligger tæt på hinanden for at gøre det en anelse mere subtilt. Opskriften inkluderer instruktioner for en venderækkehæl og en bondehæl / afterthought heel (en hæl der strikkes på efterfølgende), vælg den du bedst kan li’! Opskriften er skrevet så den nemt kan strikkes med Magic Loop-metoden, men helt almindelige strømpepinde kan selvfølgelig også bruges.

Garn: Lane Cervinia Strømpegarn (Brugsens Strømpegarn) (70% Uld, 30% Nylon), 150 m per 50g. Farver brugt her:

C: Mørkegrå 525316 – 1-1-2 ngl
eller brug ethvert andet garn med en løbelængde på ca. 150-200 meter per 50g.
For str L kan du nøjes med 4 nøgler garn i alt, men så vil farveskiftene skulle justeres.

Andet: Nål til at hæfte ender med. 2 forskellige maskemarkører. Eventuelt: 20 cm bomuldsgarn hvis du vælger at strikke hælen efterfølgende.
