Pay What Works: In an effort to find a balance between more financial accessibility and sustainable pricing, I now offer a “Pay What Works” model. This allows for financial flexibility while still valuing and respecting the work and energy I and others provide in the making of this pattern. The price shown on Ravelry is the “true” value of the pattern that best reflects the work put into creating this design.

To purchase the pattern at a price point that is more accessible to you, use the coupon code at checkout listed next to the price point. The prices indicate the price you will pay, not the discount amount. No coupon code is needed for the highest price point.

AROHA1 - $6.00

AROHA2 - $7.20

AROHA3 - $9.60

NO CODE - $12.00

Please note for those located in Europe that VAT is applied at checkout.

There is, perhaps, nothing more grounding than gazing up at the night sky. When we contemplate the vastness of the universe, we realize just how small we are, and in turn, how small our troubles are.

Stelliferous socks combine cables and lace in a sort of yin-yang relationship; narrow cables of twisted stitches contrast with flowing lacework and cheery bobbles as they travel from the toe to the twisted rib cuff. These socks find the perfect balance between constraint and liberation. Take time on a clear night to lie down in the grass, point your Stelliferous toes to the stelliferous sky, and search the heavens for a new perspective on life.
