The Fibre Co. - Festive Mistletoe Socks Kit
Drawing inspiration from traditional Scandinavian-style colorwork, the Festive Mistletoe Socks feature charming motifs of holly leaves, mistletoe, and snow. The stranded colorwork uses only two shades per round with short floats, making this project accessible to beginners while offering a thoroughly enjoyable experience for more advanced knitters. Once you complete the cuff and colorwork sections, the rest of the knitting shifts into a smooth and relaxing stockinette stitch. Using three seasonal shades of The Fibre Co.’s Amble, these socks will not only keep your toes cosy but also infuse every stitch with the festive spirit.
This kit includes enough yarn to make a pair of Festive Mistletoe Socks.
Amble is a specially designed sock yarn, thoughtfully crafted by combining eco-friendly, washable wool and alpaca with recycled nylon for strength and durability. This yarn stands out as the perfect choice for projects like the Festive Mistletoe Socks, where softness and strength are desired.
