Home from woodland walks, my family and me,
Spotting fungus on the ground and spiralling round trees.

A moment to savour - of rest, warmth and peace,
with my toadstool socks and my morning tea.

About the Socks

The Chantarelle Socks feature a gentle fluffy ruffle, inspired by that lovely mushroom with a fancy name, adding some whimsy to an understated ribbed sock. The rib mimics the mushrooms ridges which run all the way down the stem and will help the sock to stay up while you are wearing them out foraging with your favourite boots, just with the whimsical ruffle showing. These socks are knitted cuff down and finished with a slip stitch heel flap and a rounded wedge toe.

Sizes

S (M, L) the sizes are measured on leg and foot circumference as the length of the foot is adjustable

Finished Measurements

Leg length 15cm / 6” from the cuff to the start of the heel

Gauge

36 sts and 48 rows per 4 inches/10 centimetres in stocking stitch worked in the round

Yarn

You will need approximately 70g (80g,100g) of fingering weight yarn for your main colour (mc) and 15g of lace weight mohair for your ruffle - I used Mr B Hiddleston 4 ply 75/25 SW Merino Nylon 100g/425m in colourway Touch of Mink for the fingering weight and Isager Silk Mohair 75/25 Kid Mohair Silk 25g/212m in colourway 62 for the ruffle.

Needles

A set of 2.25mm needles for knitting a small circumference in the round or size needed to obtain gauge.

A 2.5mm 80cm circular needle for the ruffle which will be knit flat.
