About the pattern
his ridiculously cute pattern from Marna of An Caitin Beag is a must knit as far as we are concerned here at TLYC HQ!
The Peeky Catsock features a colourwork catface designed to peek out of maryjane and other low fronted shoes. It’s got contrast cuff/ heel/ toe, and rows of little cat faces on the ankle and is a quick, fun knit!
The pattern is one size, but there are instructions for adjusting the length to suit your feet. It’s knit cuff-down, with a short row heel.
About the needles (optional extra)
Light in weight, with a warm natural touch, bamboo is the ideal material from which to make knitting needles. Clover selects only the finest Japanese bamboo (ta-ke), then polishes needles and points to a fine smoothness that prevents yarn from splitting. Tapered ends make these easy to insert into stitches. The bamboo gives these needles just enough 'stickiness' to keep the yarn on needles which is useful for knitting in the round, particularly for beginners.
There are 5 needles per pack so perfect for people who like to use 4 needles to hold the yarn and work with the 5th while knitting in the round.
