Pay What You Can


For all new patterns, and my older patterns that are being re-released, I will be trying out the ‘pay what you can’ pricing. This is to attempt to create a balance between sustainable pricing and keeping my patterns financially accessible to everyone. I hope that this new model helps to value my and other’s work that’s gone into this pattern, while at the same time, allowing for financial flexibility for everyone who is kind enough to purchase it.

The price shown on Ravelry (£10) is the price that reflects the work that I and others have put into this pattern, but you can choose between several price points. Simply click on the price you’d like to pay!

Please remember, depending on where you live you may have to pay vat.

About This Pattern


Let me introduce you to Sommerblüten, your next pair of fun and cosy house socks! Meaning ‘Summer Blooms’ in German, they reflect the natural and botanical qualities of the beautiful, naturally dyed Origin, a 100% German merino from Raincloud & Sage. Being a natural sock yarn greatly influenced the design. Though a relatively rustic and hard-wearing yarn, I wanted to give the socks extra strength and durability, which led to the slipped stitch pattern you see today.

With their multiple style and fit options, you can make your Sommerblütens exactly how you wish. I can’t wait to see how you make yours!

This pattern has been professionally tech edited and test knit.

Happy knitting! x
