We’re sure you’ll think these socks are a hit!

When it comes to knitting knee highs, we drafted local talent: Barb Brown is known as the “great one” for plotting with mathematical precision the curves of the calf. Follow her finely crafted instructions and you’ll be able to score a pair of shapely knee high socks with beautifully cabled patterning on the back of the leg. Knit in three sizes for shapely, shapelier and shapeliest legs!

The key to winning the game is passing the puck at the right time. This stitch reminds Barb of the tic-tac-toe pass that puts the puck in the net. The elongated stitch also highlights the colour changes in these team yarns, and helps break up pooling.

Turn your hockey socks into a fashion statement. And, knit knee highs with just one jumbo sized skein of RCY Hat Trick. Our sample pictures show Rock ‘Em Socks in Hat Trick colourway, Winnipeg and in Hat Trick Semi-Solid colourway, Poke Check. You can purchase River City Yarn’s exclusive Hat Trick yarns online:
