There is a new pattern available in the shop, ready for download. This particular design is named Lumene for the twisting cables that lay within the flame-like elements on the socks.
The pattern has been written to include both charted and fully written instructions, so knitters are free to choose whichever form of instruction they would prefer to follow when knitting. The stitch pattern is deceptively simple, with very little cabling, but the elements are so placed to mean that each stitch is used to it’s greatest impact. The minimal cabling also keeps the socks elastic and very comfortable.
The lace and cable patterning comes to a graduated stop as you reach the instep, giving these socks a robust extended wear in the places that you need it most, to compliment the cushioned heel and smooth toe.
