Adventure into Texture with the Rogue Star Socks ...
In Just One Hank of Rowan Fine Art Yarn!
Shop Rowan Fine Art
Each month, the challenge increases. First, Amy brought you the simple and utilitarian Launch Pad Socks. Last month, she upped the ante with ribs and cables in the Red Planet Socks. This month, we venture into mirrored cables and a symmetrical staghorn texture stitch with the Rogue Star Socks.
Rowan Yarns Logo
Worked from the cuff down, these handsome socks combine mirrored cable panels on both front and back with sections of heavy texture down either side. Luckily, even an all-over pattern like this is relatively simple to keep straight with Amy's instruction; it's basically just two patterns alternating around.

The general formula for sock yarns these days is about 75% animal fiber (usually wool) and 25% synthetic binder to make your socks more durable (don't worry, the sheep are fine). What makes Rowan Fine Art interesting—aside from the gorgeous colors—is that the "animal fiber" in this yarn is a combination of wool and two other more durable natural fibers: mohair and silk. Frequently considered luxury fibers, mohair and silk are also two of the more durable natural knitting fibers. Also, these rich, beautiful colors are dyed by a company that helps empower individuals from some of the poorest communities of South Africa.
