Melodious Wrap Kits

by Amy Loberg

This simple asymmetrical triangular wrap consists of alternating rows of Stockinette stitch in one yarn and Reverse Stockinette stitch in a second yarn. Basic increases and decreases give it it's shape, and a sneaky little wrapping technique means you don't have to cut your yarn at the color changes … so there are just four tails to weave in!

Sock of the Month: Scottish Heather Socks

Roam the Moorlands in our "Scottish Heather Socks" ...
Featuring HiKoo's Sueno yarn ... 20% Off!

Two things come to mind when you think of Scotland ... fields of wild heather and kilts! Amy did not design a knitted kilt pattern (maybe one of these days) but she did create a pair of beautiful socks inspired by both the heather flower and traditional kilt hose!

The perennial flower Heather has played an important role in the history and symbolism of Scotland for centuries. It's branches have been used for everything from roofs to ale and is an important food source for the moors' wildlife, including native sheep and deer.

Kilt Hose are traditional woolen stockings worn knee high and folded to create a thicker cuff. Before the invention of knitting, these socks were made of woven cloth. Knitted stockings became the norm in the mid-nineteenth century because they stay up on the legs much better.

The Scottish Heather Socks incorporate both the colors of Scotland's heathered moors and the design of kilt stockings into a modern sock. The tall legs and decorative tops are perfect to wear with fall boots. Knit in three colors of sport weight, machine-washable Sueno Yarn, these boot socks are perfect for both men and women. So grab your needles and get ready for a sock knitting trip to the beautiful country of Scotland!

Bonus: Get the pattern FREE with purchase of Sueno Yarn!

Thank you to Becky and Sharon for your visions of Scotland that inspired this month's sock!

The Scottish Heather Socks start at the top with color blocked stripes and a lovely cabled cuff. The wide ribbing on the leg and foot is both attractive and makes for an excellent fitting fitting sock. The toes and afterthought heels are knit in the same color as the cuff stripes, giving the socks a cohesive color story that reflect the beautiful hues of Scotland's glen. You'll love wearing these sturdy but soft socks all winter long!

Hat Kit ... 25% Off!

The hat starts with an inner lining knit in stockinette stitch on smaller needles. Next comes the stranded colorwork. This colorwork pattern is a breeze to knit though, since only two colors are used at once. You may find yourself saying, "just one more row!" ... it's so fun to see the pattern emerge after each round. When the top of the hat is done, fold the inner lining to the inside and sew it to the outer layer of the hat just below the start of the crown shaping. The Moroccan Star Hat is perfect for staying cozy while looking stylish this winter!
