To the Moon and Back
This beautiful, toe-up, cabled sock was inspired by Sam McBratney’s classic children’s story, Guess How Much I Love You. It was created for a Little Skein in the Big Wool limited edition kit (available March-June 2014).
Sizes available: The pattern features a wonderful array of sizes, from toddler to adult extra-large, so that you can knit these socks for the Little and Big Nutbrown Hares in your life, and every size in between.
Yarn: The socks were designed using Must Stash Yarn Perfect Sock, which is the perfect blend of softness and strength. Little Skein’s kits included a skein of this beautiful, hand-dyed yarn, but you can use any favorite fingering weight sock yarn.
Skills needed: To knit these socks, you will need to:
- Be familiar with sock construction or be an adventurous beginner
- Read a chart
- Cable stitches (with or without a cable needle)
The traveling cable pattern is easy to follow, and for intermediate sock knitters, the pattern will be a breeze.
The pattern has been written for two circular needles, but it can be easily adapted to other sock knitting techniques such as magic loop or double-pointed needles. Feel free to use the method with which you are most comfortable.
The pattern was tech-edited by Elizabeth Green Musselman of Dark Matter Knits.
