The Julgubbe Socks are an adorable, comfy and festive pair of socks featuring a cute Santa Claus motif around the cuffs. These socks are worked top-down, starting from the ribbed cuff. Cute little bobbles are created to top the Santa hats before moving on to the colourwork. After the Santas, the rest of the sock is worked in a relaxing lyce stitch. This pattern includes a heel flap and gusset construction, where the gusset decreases are worked on the bottom of the foot, finally finishing with a rounded toe.

These wonderful colourwork socks are knitted in Amble, a specially designed sock yarn made from a blend of eco-friendly washable wool and alpaca for comfort, as well as recycled nylon for strength. Since the yarn needed for the eyes of the Santa motifs uses so little, we only include the yarn for three shades in this kit, as mentioned in the colours section below.
