Florence Sock Cover

Product Description

For this pattern I used:

Yarn & Amounts: One (two) 50g hanks of  Purl & Jane Cuckoo Cashmere 4 ply  (80% Merino wool & 20% Cashmere, 200m/218yds per 50g).

Metres/Yardage: approx. 200m(up to 400m)

Needles: 2.5mm double pointed.

Gauge (tension): 30 stitches and 42 rows to 10cm/4ins square over stocking stitch using 2.5mm needles.

Size: This sock fits all feet sizes with a simple adjustment that is shown in the pattern. It needs one hank for sizes up to UK 5 and two hanks for all sizes larger than 5.

My design ideas and advice: These socks have a simple lace rib on the front of them. I knitted them in the gorgeously soft Purl &Jane Cuckoo Cashmere 4 ply, which is a luxurious combination of 80% merino and 20% cashmere. The finished socks are so light and soft that when you put them on your feet, you will feel like you are walking on clouds. And because they are natural fibres, they have the magical ability to regulate your body temperature, so your feet will be the perfect temperature and so will you! They are perfect to knit now the evenings are getting darker because the yarn feels so deliciously smooth and comforting between your fingers, meaning it is soothing while you’re knitting with it…and then soothing for your feet when the socks are completed!
