Sock of the Month: “Spice Market” Socks

Put some color in your step with our "Spice Market" Socks ...
Featuring Schoppel Wolle's Zauberball yarn!

The "Spice Market" Socks pay homage to the vibrant colors seen in traditional marketplaces across India, the Middle East and North Africa. Vendors sell a variety of goods from fresh fruits, vegetables, meat and cheeses to wines and liquors, clothing, shoes and textiles. The lively activity is highlighted by the shouts of vendors tempting those passing by! It's a place not only to pick up your weekly groceries, but to catch up with neighbors, get a coffee or to hear live music.

Amy was taken with the bins of colorful spices and they quickly became the inspiration for the design of her eye-catching "Spice Market" Socks. Using the long color changes of Zauberball Yarn and an entrelac knitting technique, she was able to evoke the colors and shapes of the exotic spice market bins!

Spice Market Socks

by Amy Loberg

Pattern FREE with purchase
of Zauberball

When looking at the rows of spices in baskets, Amy's mind immediately went to the shape and structure of entrelac to create the Spice Market Socks!

Worked from the toe up, the top of the foot and leg are knit in entrelac while the bottom of the foot remains in stockinette stitch. The socks have a pretty eye of partridge heel and and a ribbed cuff with a couple of rows of reverse-stockinette for a decorative edge.

PLEASE NOTE: Amy happened to get very closely matching color repeats on her socks ... but this almost never happens with Zauberball self-striping yarn. If you absolutely must have semi-matching socks, you may want to wind the yarn by hand (it does not play well with a swift and ball winder) to get two balls that start at roughly the same color repeat. Or, simply embrace the uniqueness of the two slightly mismatched socks ... they are so in style right now!!

Finished Sizes

Small (Medium, Large) - Due to the stretchy nature of the entrelac blocks, these socks can stretch lengthwise or around. The medium size is approx. 7" wide but can stretch to 9" wide.
