The knots and columns that decorate the shank of the Gaudi Socks recall the arborescent columns of Barcelona’s Sagrada Famillia Basilica designed by renowned architect Antoni Gaudi.

A change in colour signals a change in texture and the commencement of the heel flap. Once completing the heel turn, knitters can enjoy soothing stockinette in the formation of the foot, which tapers towards the three needle bind off.

Techniques include:
✔ Top down
✔ Charted lace pattern
✔ Heel flap and turn
✔ Three needle bind off
