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: “Inukshuk” Socks

Celebrate Canada's Native History with the "Inukshuk" Socks ...
Featuring Malabrigo Sock yarn!

The "Inukshuk" Socks were inspired by the human-made stone landmarks constructed of piled rocks known as Inuksuit (the plural of Inukshuk). They're found from Alaska to Greenland above the Arctic Circle. Going back thousands of years, Inuksuit have served an important role in the culture of the Inuit and other peoples of the Arctic region.

Inuksuit come in many shapes including one that suggests a human figure ... hence the meaning of the Inuit word Inukshuk: "... to act in the capacity of a human". In an area with few natural landmarks, their purpose was for communication.  A few of the uses of these markers included navigational and hunting aids, coordination points and campsite locations.

Today the Inukshuk has become popular as a cultural symbol, not only of native peoples, but more generally representing Canada.  The Inukshuk was even used in the design for the 2010 Olympic Games held in Vancouver, B.C.

Knit in the lovely Malabrigo Sock yarn, you'll have a story to tell each time you wear our Inukshuk Socks!

Thank you to Tammy for suggesting Inukshuk as the inspiration for this month's sock!

Inukshuk Socks

by Amy Loberg

Pattern FREE with purchase of Malabrigo Sock

Amy's taken the shape of the Inukshuk and translated it into a simple, but effective stockinette and reverse stockinette stitch pattern. The overall patterning makes for fun to knit (and wear) socks. These top-down socks start with classic rib and include a sturdy eye of partridge heel. The Inukshuk patterning goes around the leg and continues on the top of the foot. Put it all together and you'll have a cool pair of socks that are sure to turn some heads!
