Description

Inspired by traditional quilts, the Starflight socks recall common quilt block motifs such as sawtooth stars and flying geese, with texture reminiscent of hand-quilting. Then engrossing texture combined with geometric colorwork make the knitting of these socks fly by.

A stunning representation of American West craft and the beauty that can emerge from limited material, these socks, like so many handmade quilts are as beautiful as they are warm. As designer Allison Lutes muses, "This design is like a vintage quilt pulled from a cedar chest - an heirloom ready to shine in the modern world."

Suggested Needle Size: US 1 - 2.25mm

Colors featured in the pictures are Ranch Romance and Lil' Waapitti on Bear Paw Sock.

The pattern can be found in Issue 46 of Pom Pom Quarterly Magazine.

There is enough yardage in 2 skeins of yarn to make 2 pairs of socks if you reverse the colorwork.
