AUGUST 2021 This pattern was given a refresh which included an additional chart and a general rewrite to bring it in line with my more recent patterns. I also knitted a new sample, and updated all the photos within the pattern.
To celebrate the re launch, I have discounted the pattern by 20% until the end of August 2021. No code required, discount applied at checkout.

These socks were inspired by the stories of Laura Ingalls Wilder.

Laura wrote about her childhood, growing up on the prairies of Kansas. As I was knitting these socks, the stitch pattern reminded me of the wheat fields that Pa Ingalls farmed.

I would like to imagine that this is the kind of pattern that Ma would have knitted for her family.

I set out with the intention of creating a pattern that was relaxing to knit whilst still being engaging, exciting and addictive !

The pattern includes video tutorials to demonstrate the texture pattern and Kitchener stitch.

It is perfect for all levels of knitter and comes in 3 sizes to accommodate all your family members.

The pattern sample is knitted with a skein of my own hand dyed yarn in the colourway ‘Wide Open Prairie’. I no longer sell my yarn but you can see exactly how I created this colourway in episode 180 of our video show. Just search ‘Bakery Bears’ on YouTube to watch for free.
