Adult medium. 250 yds sportweight yarn, 6½ stitches/inch, size US 2 / 3.0 mm needles suggested. Charted instructions.
Shown above in 2-ply handspun yarn blend of silk, wool, mohair and alpaca. I purchased the fiber from Lambspun and it was called "Fireworks". This is the same fiber I used as a singles yarn for the All-Over Lace Faroese Shawl. The fiber has subtle variations in color, therefore the 2-ply yarn looks like a different yarn than the singles, not only in thickness, but slightly different in overall color.
Tip: If you aren't a handspinner, a good yarn choice to get a similar look is to use 2 or 3 strands held together of Helen's Lace silk/wool by Lorna's Laces in color #44 Grays Corner.
Another example of these socks, this time knitted in handspun silk/wool yarn. Don't you love the subtle variations and soothing gray and pink colors in these socks?
For an easy variation that produces delightful heart-patterned anklets with scalloped leg edging, follow the originally published
Heart Socks pattern instructions as given for cuff except omit the ribbing rounds. Work all other instructions as given.
Available for a limited time (when they're gone, they're gone):
- Heart Socks Kits (includes yarn, pattern for the original Heart Socks plus a supplement sheet for the easy scalloped cuff variation )
- Yarn Paks (yarn only for making Heart Socks)
Here is a further adaptation of the original Heart Socks pattern, this time in a sandal socks version knitted in ShibuiKnits Sock color #1797. For more about making this version, check out my Taking Time to Smell the Roses blog.
