The Story
I love a vanilla sock as much as the next gal. But sometimes the pooling in a variegated yarn needs to be interrupted when the heel is worked. These Vanillus Interruptus fit the bill perfectly!

Materials

  • House of A La Mode Fiber Goods House Fingering (2-ply fingering weight; 80% superwash merino wool, 20% nylon; 400 yds / 365 m per 3.5 oz / 100g), 1 skein: ‘Kilt’
  • US 1.5 (2.5 mm) 32” / 81 cm circular needle
  • Fixed stitch markers (2); clip stitch marker (1)
  • Row counter (optional)
  • Tapestry needle

Finished Sizes
6.75 (7.5, 8.5, 9.25)” / 17 (19, 21.5, 23.5) cm circumference (unstretched). Fit: 1” / 2.5 cm of negative ease is recommended.

Project Gauge
34 sts and 48 rows = 4” / 10 cm over stockinette stitch in the round, taken after blocking.

Notes

  • These socks are worked from the cuff-down and feature a Gusset Heel. These socks are mirrors of one another.
  • Instructions are given for smallest size with additional sizes in parentheses. When only one set of instructions is given, it applies to all sizes.
  • Adjust needle size as necessary to match gauge.
  • This pattern includes charted instructions for the patterned section of the sock and is written for the Magic Loop technique.
  • In the case of using DPNs, the Front Needle is synonymous with Needles 1 & 2 and the Back Needle is synonymous with Needles 3 & 4.

Errata
In the Heel Flap section, for the largest size of sock, the repeat of Rows 1 and 2 should be 19, not 29. An update has been pushed through Ravelry.

For the LEFT sock only, in the written instructions, repeat p1, k1 6 times, not 5. An update has been pushed through Ravelry.
