The Hebridean Walking Socks were designed in 2020 as part of Rowan Tree Travel’s Armchair Travel Knit Kits. Our intent was to connect our travel community with the yarn farmers and artisans at our various destinations through the Covid-19 pandemic. We no longer offer these kits -- or are stuck at home due to the pandemic -- but you can still enjoy making a pair of hearty socks using this pattern. And if you get to purchase sock yarn whilst on one of our fiber adventures overseas, that’s even better!

Every traveler longs for a good pair of socks. What could be nicer than a pair of warm & comfy ones, custom made just for you? (Or for a loved one, if you’re feeling generous…) Our Hebridean Walking Socks are designed to cushion and support your feet during long distance walks. Each is constructed by starting at the toes and working up the foot. You choose the width, length and cuff height that works best for you. We’ve paired the pattern with some sturdy, beautiful yarn from our friends at Birlinn Yarn Company. From warm weather to cold, dry days to pouring rainy ones, these socks will help you navigate those outdoor adventures your heart so longs to undertake. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself planning to knit up some additional pairs before your first walk in them is complete!
