Shapely Sandal Socks

HeartStrings knitting pattern #S05

The bold lines of textured diamonds play against tweedy multicolors in these socks featuring a delightful patterned heel. Shapely Sandal Socks provide snuggly warmth even on cool days in sandals or open-backed slippers.

The tweedy variegation is created by knitting two strands of fingering weight variegated yarn together as one. Select the same variegated colorway for each strand, or even choose two different colorways for variety and fun.

Adult small[medium,large].

2 strands of fingering weight yarn are knitted together as one for an equivalent worsted weight yarn.

You will need 175[210,245] yards of fingering weight sock yarn in each of two different variegated yarns (i.e. total of 350[410,490] yards).

5½ stitches per inch over stockinette stitch using two fingering weight yarns held together, size US 4 / 3.5 mm needles suggested.

Shown here in Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock color #64 Gold Hill.

Pattern stitch instsructions are charted individually for each size.

It is fun to knit Shapely Sandal Socks using a different variegated color for each of the 2 strands. First example below was knitted in Lorna's Laces #64 Gold Hill and #74 Mother Lode. The example beneath that is Lorna's Laces #46 Jeans and #501 Argyle.
