Description

This kit was designed for the Knit School 2020 Festive Sock-A-Long but you get everything in the kit to make it on your own as well.  You can find all of the tutorials for the Sock-a-long here on our YouTube channel.

Each kit includes enough yarn to make two festive socks (when the white is used for the cuff, heel & toe).

In the Yarn Only kit you get:  

- 2 Balls of the main colour (shown here in Adore (red), also avalable in Bliss (pink) & Ponder (teal))

- 1 Ball in the contrast colour (Serene (cream))

In the Add Pattern kit you get the yarn plus: 

- A printed copy of the Simply the Simplest Christmas Sock Pattern

In the Needles Please option you get the yarn, the pattern and:

- A 40cm 5.5mm circular needle (Bamboo tips)

- A set of 5.5mm double-pointed needles (Bamboo tips)

- A tapestry needle

(Needles are shown but the Needles Please option must be selected to add needles to the kit)

About the yarn

West Yorkshire Spinners Retreat Chunky is a softly spun yarn that is perfect for quick knits!  

See the individual yarn pictures for the most accurate colour representation.

About the pattern

The Simply the Simplest Christmas Sock pattern by Michelle Gregory include the instructions to make a decorative hanging Christmas Sock.

The sock is worked in the round on a circular needle.  The heel is worked on double-pointed needles using wrap and turn short rows.  The toe is grafted using Kitchener stitch.  All of these techniques are covered in the free festive Sock-a-Long from November 30th, linked above.

Finished size:

Top of cuff (unfolded) to bottom of the heel: 15½ inches.

Back of heel to tip of toe: 16 inches.

About the needles

The Needles Please kit includes two different needle types, a circular needle and double-pointed needles.  This is because it is easier to knit the cuff, leg & foot on the circular needle and to turn the heel and work the toe in the double-pointed needles.

    Amazing yarn!

    The roving yarn included in this kit is so squishy and lovely to work with, gives great stitch definition. The needles included work nicely with the yarn and are really comfortable to knit with. As always awesome customer service from Michelle as well!
