This is a sock version of my Fern Spiral Fingerless Gloves. It has an hourglass heel which allows the spiraling pattern to continue unfettered. It’s very fun to knit and I’m on my third pair. I used Ashland Bay La Grande (many indie dyers use this) 100% superwash merino dyed with eucalyptus leaves and madder root. Suggested subs are Sock by Shibui Knits, Dream in Color “Smooshy” or “Smooshy with Cashmere”, Malabrigo Finito would be amazing, but perhaps not as hard wearing, or any sock yarn that suggests knitting on US 2/2.75 mm needles at gauge of 6 - 7 sts per inch in stockinette.
