Part 1:

Summer’s coming to an end, but there’s still time for some knitting pleasure! Let us collect our memories and impressions – the shells, roses and meetings – arrange them carefully while we’re knitting socks together. Like the last rose of summer, the Sock of Roses is a way to hold on to the beautiful summer for just a little bit longer. A last warming breath before the leaves turn brown and the winds blow colder. Welcome to knit the #sockofroses together with us at Järbo Garn!

Now it’s time for one of our popular knit-alongs! This time we’ll knit a pair of socks in four parts – the “Sock of Roses”, designed by Maja Karlsson. The knit-along will be held in Swedish, Norwegian, Danish and English.

The Sock of Roses is a toe up sock with short cuff and classic heel, knitted with the following techniques:

Judy’s Magic Cast On
Stranded Colorwork
Mock Cable Stitch
Cable Stitch Heel
Two-Color Ribbing
Elastic Bind Off
