Inspired by the character Kendall Wakefield in Wherever There Is Light by Peter Golden, these socks are elegant and refined but have a unique charm all their own. In the novel, Kendall, known to many as Kenni-Ann, was born into a life of high expectations. Her mother, the daughter of a slave, founded an African American college in Florida. Despite pressure to remain a fixture at the college, Kenni-Ann is an artist at heart and moves to New York to forge her own path in life. These socks are a tribute to her character’s adventurous spirit.

This is a cuff-down sock pattern with a heel flap and gusset. It is charted.

Sizes: Small (Medium, Large)

Finished Measurements:
Foot Circumference: 7 (8, 9) inches
Foot Length: Customizable
Note: This pattern has a fair amount of stretch. Choose a size that will give you between ½ an inch and 1 inch of negative ease.

Gauge: 9 stitches and 12 rows per inch in stockinette

Needles: US 1 (2.25 mm) or size needed to get gauge. The designer used a 9 inch circular needle for the body of the sock and DPNs for the toe, but the pattern is suitable for any style of sock knitting.

Yarn: 305 (340, 385) yards of fingering weight sock yarn. The sample was knit with Knit Picks Stroll in Dusk.
