Retro Jubilee Socks
THIS PATTERN IS PART OF THE CORONATION KNITS EBOOK COLLECTION AND IS NOT AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE SEPARATELY.
THE BOOK IS ALSO AVAILABLE IN PRINT FORMAT FROM MY WEBSITE.
These socks are knitted in the round from the top down. This pattern uses a particular shaping method at the turning of the heel to prevent holes appearing when short rows are worked. This involves working a slyo (slipped yarnover).
The chequer stitch pattern uses 2 colours at any one time with three colours used over the entire sock. Colours not in use are carried up the work.
The pattern is multi sized and also explains how to customise the socks to obtain a perfect fit.
