Divalicious Socks

$9.00

How do you celebrate your local yarn store (LYS)? With a sock knitting pattern, of course! 🥳

Divalicious is a sock knitting pattern that pays homage to your local yarn store (LYS), Yarn Divas Tea & Fibre Emporium, located in St.Albert, Canada. This sock pattern has all the fun – cables and colourwork! Beautiful tiny cables adorn the instep and the back of the leg, while colourwork bands are inserted next to the cuff, toes, and before adding your peasant heel!

Description

Divalicious – Worked in the round, Divalicious contains both cuff-down and toe-up written directions and a chart for the pattern stitch. The pattern has instructions for a peasant heel (afterthought heel using scrap yarn).

The pattern is written for the magic loop method for knitting socks; however, the design could be worked on double-pointed needles or mini-circulars instead should you prefer (ensure you denote your instep stitches with extra markers – so you don’t miss the placement of the heel or toe shaping).

This pattern is available in our Standard formatting. Low-visibility and screen-reader-accessible versions of this pattern are available with this pattern purchase. The low-visibility format is 24pt print in Arial, black font, no italics, and contains written directions (there are no charts to work from). The screen reader format has all the items mentioned above, contains no abbreviations, and accessibility was checked by the read-aloud function on both a Windows PC and Android device.
