Flour and sugar and primrose oil,
made with care and love and toil.
Just like the flowers the colours vary,
the cream is thick and the sponge is airy.
A scattering of petals for decoration,
a perfect pudding of celebration.

The focus of these socks is the pretty layered cuff. There is no sewing involved to join the layers together, just knitting. The socks are worked with a short row heel so that the stripes on the self striping yarn isn’t interrupted but these socks could be knit in endless combinations of colours, stripes or speckles. I can’t wait to see the combinations you come up with.


S (M, L) the sizes are measured on leg and foot circumference as the length of the foot is adjustable

Finished Measurements

Leg length 7.5cm / 3” from the cuff to the start of the heel

Leg and foot circumference 15cm / 6” (18cm / 7”, 20cm / 8”)


36 sts and 48 rows per 4 inches/10 centimetres in stocking stitch worked in the round


You will need approximately 50g (50g, 60g )of fingering weight yarn for your main colour (mc)
and 20g of fingering weight yarn in two contrasting colours.

For the bright pair with the stocking stitch scallop I used Down Sheepy Lane Self Striping with Stellina 75% superwash merino, 20% nylon, 5% silver stellina in colourway ‘Life’s a Peach and pale pink (cc1) and white (cc2) 75% superwash merino, 25% nylon for CC1 and CC2.

For the muted pair with the garter scallop I used vintage The Wool Barn self striping with contrast minis from Fine Fish Yarns.


Two sets of 2.25mm needles for knitting a small circumference in the round or size needed to obtain gauge.

A set 2.75mm needles which will be used to knit the layers together.
