I used to knit patterned socks all the time – the busier and more complicated, the better. But after having kids, my knitting time shrank to stolen moments in a mostly brain-dead state, which meant lots of vanilla socks. With the Stellen socks, devised in the red-orange color that makes my heart race, I’m reclaiming my love of patterned, gorgeous, show-stopper socks.

Knit from the top down, Stellen showcases clean lines of mock cabled lace that flow down the front of the leg and top of the foot. The mock cable technique and eyelets are also featured on the back of the leg and heel flap with a simple 4-row repeat. Sizing variations are hidden in reverse stockinette panels.

The front of this sock is not that stretchy; choose a size with approximately 0.5”/1 cm negative ease.
