This design was originally created for the Neighborhood Fiber Co Innerloop Accessory Club 2016. Will be available for purchase January 17.

These toe up, knee socks have something for everyone. Love variegated yarn? Love stripes? Love ribbing? Love the look of cables (without the effort)? I designed these with the beautiful Scottdale colorway in mind. I wanted handdyed yarn to be the focus while also taking striped socks to the next level. Since these were released in July I thought throwing in some lace would make it more possible for you to knit them right now and actually wear them now. The title came from a saying used by corn growers in which the corn should be ‘Knee high by July’.

Details: Knee High by July is knit from the toe up and uses an after thought heel. The center motif is a mix of simple mesh and a stockinette panel that is wrapped occasionally to create a smocked look. The back of the sock mirrors this element. The calf shaping is created using 2x2 ribbing for interest and to help the socks stay up. These should be worn with negative ease.
