Hello fellow knitter!

This sock pattern was a long time coming! It was made in collaboration with Ovis et cetera yarn, which allowed me to design socks in any colours under the sun. So, I looked at the cover art of the music I was listening to and both the colours and pattern name came to me: Transcendence.

The socks are knitted toe up, and you achieve your sock size by adjusting needle size and number of rows worked. The heel in the pattern has been modified since the top photo (photo 2 & 3), but I’ve included notes on how to make it with the colourwork across the heel in case you are up for the challenge.

I hope you will enjoy this pattern, and if you need any help or have any suggestions, this topic in my Ravelry group is the best place for support. Happy knitting!

Some practical information

  • Yarn: max 200 metres MC, 160 m CC 1, 10 m of CC 2 & 3 each.
  • Needles: 1 x DPNs or magic loop circular gauge size needles and 1/2 mm below gauge needles.

Gauge & sizes

  • Gauge ranges from 35 to 32 sts = 10cm/4”, depending on size.

  • Sizes ranges from UK 4-7 /US 6-9/Euro 36-40, depending on gauge.

  • In other words, gauge is important to achieve the desired size. But I don’t think swatching for socks is worth your time. So, start with the needles you think you’ll need. If choosing between two needle sizes, go with the smaller one. These socks start with the toes, and tight knit toes are sturdy toes! Measure your gauge as you go. If you are on gauge: good, if you are off gauge: either rip out or change needle size as you go.
