"Hempathy" is a great blend of cotton, hemp and modal. Two different strands plied together give this yarn a slight textured look and the hint of sheen adds a little reflectivity. The softness of cotton, the elasticity of modal, and the drape of hemp combine to make this the perfect yarn for summer sweaters and accessories!

Sock of the Month: “Tulip Field” Socks

Knit Holland's colorful flower fields with our "Tulip Field" Socks ...
Featuring HiKoo's CoBaSi yarn ... 20% Off!

The inspiration for the "Tulip Field" Socks came from the millions of flowers that transform the fields throughout the Netherlands into bright swatches of color every spring!

Imported from the Ottoman Empire, tulips came to Holland in the 16th century, eventually becoming so popular they created the first economic bubble known as "Tulip Mania". Flowers have been have been a vital part of the country's economy ever since. In fact, the flower business in the Netherlands make up about two-thirds of the total flower sales in the world ... that's a lot of daffodils, hyacinths, crocuses and tulips!

With a unique construction and lots of bold color, our "Tulip Field" Socks are the perfect tribute to Holland's beautiful fields of flowers.  Show off your colors ... wear them this summer with a pair of sandals!

Thank you to Pamela M. for her lovely sock idea of spring tulip fields in Amsterdam!

To create the vertical stripes of color in these socks, Amy reached deep into her bag of sock-knitting tricks! They are knit side to side, starting with the sole and back of the leg. In this section, two colors are knit side by side in each row with an intarsia join. (If you need a visual, check out Tin Can Knits fantastic intarsia color joining tutorial). The toe and heel shaping are achieved with increases, decreases and short rows.

Once the sole and back of the leg are complete, the rows for the top of the foot and front of the leg are knit with only one color at a time. The cast on stitches are grafted to the last row of worked stitches and then the toe is seamed. Lastly, stitches are picked up for the cuff.

It may seem complicated, but if you take it step by step you will end up with a terrific looking pair of socks that show off your mad sock-knitting skills!
