About the Pattern
Queen of Hearts Sock

This pattern was designed to be a treat for Valentine's Day as everyone needs a treat now and then! It is made using my Superwash Merino DK yarn which is not only soft but is capable of being machine washed on a wool cycle if you so desire. The colourway was dyed especially for this pattern and is called Sweet Valentine. You would also be able to use any of my other DK yarns for this pattern is you wish.

A great project to while away those long winter nights and when you've finished you've got something that not only looks good but will keep your feet warm as well. What more could you want ?

How it's done
Queen of Hearts Sock Stitch Detail

You can make these socks using one skein (100 grams) of handpainted Woolhunter Superwash Merino DK. This will make one pair of women's medium sized socks for shoe size 4-7 (US 6-9). Finished foot length is approx 9½ inches but this can be adjusted by knitting extra/less rows to suit your feet. Similarly the finished foot circumference is 8 inches.

Tension/Gauge is 6 Stitches per inch in stockinette stitch using 1 set (5 pins) of double pointed 3 mm (US 2-3) needles. You may wish to adjust the needles up or down to get the correct gauges.

You will also need 1 Large "eyed" darning needle.

Please note, however, that if you knit the socks to a longer length you may need more than the stated 100 grams skein of yarn.
