Notions: stitch marker, locking stitch marker

Notes: Elske are knitted from the toe upwards and the pattern assumes using either magic loop technique or two circulars. If using DPNs please divide the stitches evenly over 4 needles using 2 DPNs for the instep stitches (labelled Needle 1) and 2 DPNs for the sole stitches (labelled Needle 2). The left and right socks are mirror images so the seam and subsequent ‘jog’ from knitting in the round runs up the inside of the ankle. The main heart motif pattern is continuous from the central seam and wraps around the foot. Remember to keep the floats nice and loose to maintain stretch in the fabric, and catch the floats if carrying across more than 5 stitches, i.e. rows 10
and 11 of heart motif chart.
