Chilly nights spent in front of a blazing wood fire with its crackled wood and twisted flames inspired these warm, cosy socks.
A twisted rib variation is used for the cuff which smoothly transitions into the curved rib textured pattern that is mirrored on the opposite foot for symmetry before evolving into the comfortable ribbed heel.
The socks are worked from the cuff down, in the round and are knit in sock weight yarn.
While the socks are designed to match the Araluen Collection, the Araluen Hat, Araluen Cowl & Araluen Fingerless Mitts are knit using a much thicker yarn.
