Sock of the Month: “Chain of Craters” Socks!

Things are Heating Up with the "Chain of Craters Socks"

Featuring Zen Yarn Gardens' Serenity Silk + Yarn!

2016 is the 100th Anniversary of Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park ... celebrate with this stunning sock inspired by the spectacular views from the Chain of Craters Scenic Road! Located on the big island, this drive offers incredible scenes of craters, flowing rivers of molten lava, and smoking lava tubes ... the entire experience is breathtaking!

A huge shout-out to our friends at Zen Yarn Garden! ... they created this gorgeous custom colorway to reflect the colors of this volcanic landscape.  We simply don't know how they can look at a picture, a landscape or even a painting and capture the colors in their hand-dyed yarns ... truly amazing!

A big thank you to Sean’s brother Neville and his wife Jayna, who took these photos on their recent visit to the Big Island and the Volcanoes!


Chain of Craters Socks

by Amy Loberg

The intricate flowing texture of this sock pattern is both fun and a bit challenging ... perfect for the sock knitter with a little more experience! Stockinette stitch is used from the toe up until you reach the leg; then you follow a chart for the cable and rib patterning. The sock features full gusset-shaping and a sturdy Eye of Partridge heel.​
