Make a pair of stripey socks using The Fibre Co.’s popular Amble and One Sock pattern, a cassic top-down sock designed to fit all feet. Amble is a conscious blend of Easy-Wash Merino wool, alpaca and recycled nylon making it durable, soft and eco-friendly.
Designed by Kate Atherley, the One Sock pattern is written for 11 sizes from child through to large adult and includes a Guidebook as well as a One Sock Baby pattern. Those new to sock knitting will find the Guidebook full of tips and tricks to making beautiful handknit socks that fit. The pattern also has links to free video lessons – One Sock Class with Kate Atherley, a four-part series that will walk you through all parts of sock knitting.
The One Sock Striped kit allows the creation of a pair of striped socks using two 100 g hanks of Amble. If you are making all but the two largest sizes from the pattern, you should have enough yarn to make a second pair using one of the colours for the cuff, heel and toe and the second pair using the other colour.
