Thaba is one of the 11 modern, minimalist patterns featured in Issue 2 of Making Stories Magazine, available on October 29.

“I designed the Thaba Socks, inspired by mountain peaks which are the backdrop of the little valley town where I live.

Knit from the top-down, they feature twisted ribbing and a fun cable panel that mimics mountain tops stacked on top of each other.

A longer length of leg and the sturdy yarn base makes them perfect for outdoor adventures or cozying up indoors.” - Dawn
