Kellebeck Socks were published late last year in December.
The socks are a unisex design with a variation of the Coin Cable flowing down from the cuff along the sides of the leg. There is a textured element to the front and back of the socks and a double ribbed heel.
The inspiration for the name came from a female rap artist who participated on an Australian reality music show. I greatly admired how she managed to take a known song and put her own twist to it.
Originally I started creating a pair of socks just for me, with absolutely no thought that they would become a design. All I wanted a pair of bright orange socks with a round cable running down both sides of the leg and a bit of texture here and there.
I had so much fun creating my pair that I decided to publish my design.
Interlaced Socks has two firsts for me.....
It is my first pattern release for this year and my first design published in Knit Now Magazine.
Another unisex sock design with cables and texture.
These socks were inspired by the Aran jumpers I used to wear during my childhood.
The main design feature is the large interlaced cable running down the front and back of the sock with two honeycomb cable variations along side it. The sides have a small textured stitch reminiscent of the moss stitch texture Aran jumpers usually have.
I made the prototype for my husband while waiting for the sample yarn to arrive from the UK.
Who says guys don't wear hand knit socks???
