Stalwart Left Right Socks
HeartStrings knitting pattern #A32
As the name implies, these Stalwart Socks are designed to be extra strong and robust. A linen/merino blend yarn is recommended — the linen for strength and sturdy wearability; the merino for wearable cushioned softness.
These socks have added features for wearing comfort by conforming to the shape of the ankle and toes. The handsome textured knit/purl diagonal block stitch pattern transitions into ribbing at back of leg for an ankle-hugging fit and the toes have left and right shaping.
Sample socks were knitted with Louet Merlin Sport, color Cloud Grey.
Distinct left and right toe shaping
Sized for women's medium (men's large). Sport or DK weight yarn, 325(400) yards. 7 stitches/inch, size US 2 / 2.75 mm needles suggested. Charted and written stitch instructions.
