The Tulsi Socks were inspired by the colorful geographic patterns on Pukka’s beautiful tea packages. Knitting and tea are just a perfect match!
The socks are knit toe up on circular needles using the magic loop method. The stitch pattern is easy to memorize once you’ve knit a few rounds and could easily be adapted for cuff-down knitting. Instructions are offered for a gusset & heel flap heel.
Depending on the size you’ll need about 80 to 100g of fingering weight yarn – 60 - 80g in the main color and 20g in the contrasting color. The sample socks shown in the photos are knit out of Herbstblatt Regina’s Oak Sock in the colorways Hydrangea Garden (main color) and Mossy Pillows (contrasting color).
This pattern has been test knit.
