This pattern has a little bit of everything I love the most: its medley of eyelets, cables and beads mean this is a great little sock for practising your knitting techniques. The sharp stitch definition of the Titus 4ply in merino and silk lets the design of Nothing to Say do all the talking.

The finished foot circumference of these socks are: 17.5cm/7” (S), 19cm/7.5” (M), 20cm/8” (L), 21.5cm/8.5” (XL) and 23cm/9” (XXL), to fit foot circumference 19.5cm/7.5”, 21cm/8.25”, 22cm/8.75”, 23.5cm/9.25” and 25.5cm/10”.

This cuff-down sock pattern, with a gusset, heel flap and grafted toe, contains step-by-step instructions for the easy crochet hook method of beading (which avoids the need to pre-thread all the beads at once), and links to useful online tutorials. Beading is optional of course! And if you intend wearing your lovely socks with closed shoes, I suggest omitting the beads on the foot section.

This pattern is only available as part of the eBook or the Print book.
