When the ground has barely begun to thaw and other plants are still asleep, Hellebore, the Winter Rose, begins to stir. From beneath a patch of ice and snow, the first pale stems appear. Like a miracle, the translucent blossoms bring a breath of springtime long before we have any right to expect it. Hellebore is magnificently adaptable: growing happily in deep shade and rocky soils, where other plants won’t venture and can’t survive, brightening gloomy corners of the garden during the darkest part of the year.

As the first pattern in this first season of The Handmade Sock Society, the Winter Rose Socks summon the early promise and optimism of their namesake. This top down sock pattern is available in three sizes, and features a heel flap and gusset, and wedge toe. Simple lace, full of texture and interest but easily mastered, is inspired by the buds and flowers of this lovely flower.

Collection Description:
A bit of earth. A little patch of garden. A place where you can take root and feel a blossoming kinship with little growing things. Bulbs and seeds, ladybirds and dandelion clocks, sprouting mushrooms and fallen leaves, the secret world of the very small and very beautiful. The first season of The Handmade Sock Society delves into the rich life of the earth beneath our feet.

This botanically-inspired pattern subscription club is perfect for knitters who love pretty hand-knitted socks, delightful surprises, and the company of like-minded makers. Members will receive six secret sock knitting patterns: the first pattern will arrive early February 2018, and then every other month for the rest of the year, ending in December 2018. While there’s no pressure to knit every design as it arrives, this relaxed release schedule should give knitters of all speeds and skill levels time to create at their leisure.

The pattern difficulty will be adventurous beginner to intermediate: enough detail to keep things interesting, but nothing that will push it over into “difficult” territory. The idea behind each pattern is to ground ourselves in the natural rhythm of making.

All 6 patterns will be written in 3 sizes: Small, Medium, Large.

The price shown is for all 6 patterns. The patterns are only available as part of the collection. All you need to do to join is purchase The Handmade Sock Society ebook here.

Sock 1: Monday 5 February
Sock 2: Monday 2 April

Sock 4: Monday 6 August
Sock 5: Monday 1 October
Sock 6: Monday 3 December

Just like in our sister Shawl Society, along the way there will be marvellous yarn temptations from talented indie suppliers and a heart-warming abundance of community support and encouragement as you work your way through each project.
