Three Sirens Socks - pre-order now!


Do you have a go-to sock pattern? One that is just that step up from vanilla, and is perfect for knitting while watching TV, or while waiting for your kids to finish their swimming lesson? In 2018, I released the pattern for mine: Siren Song Socks.* The Siren Song Socks are vanilla-plus – a basic vanilla sock with a slipped stitch cable pattern that flows from the ribbing and makes you want to knit ‘just one row more’. Well, the Siren Song Socks have grown up: let me introduce the Three Sirens Socks.** The Three Sirens Socks take the cable from the Siren Song Socks and gives it a boost: three cables per sock, with ribbing uniquely designed for each size so the pattern flows perfectly from cuff to sock. The cable uses slipped stitches to make it pop against the reverse stocking stitch background without getting lost. If you can knit a vanilla sock, you can knit these!


The pattern goes live on April 1st, just in time for you to knit them over the Easter weekend! You can pre-order the pattern now via Ravelry (Ravelry link; proceed with caution if you have photosensitivity) or PayHip – you’ll get a prep sheet telling you everything you need to know, and when the pattern goes live, it’ll drop straight into your inbox. Why pre-order? You get a chance to clear your needles, locate your supplies and choose your yarn before the pattern lands on April 1st, and you get a bargain price! Go and order your copy now!

As ever, the pattern comes in lots of sizes [15-28 cm (6-11 in) circumference], so you choose the perfect size to fit your feet, or you could make them for your whole family!

The socks feature my favourite type of toe: the Barn toe. The toe decreases slower, then faster to create a slightly pointed shape that is finished by gathering the live sts – no need to look up how to do Kitchener stitch (again!). If you haven’t tried it before, give it a go, you might just like it!

 

You know what else is coming on April 1st? The Marathon Sock KAL – a cumulative effort to turn a marathon’s worth of sock yarn into socks, so pre-order your pattern now and you can cast on with me on April 1st! Haven’t heard about the Marathon Sock KAL? I’ll tell you all about that next week!

Love my Three Sirens Socks but want to cast on something *right now*? Why not add my Three Sirens Socks to your basket now on pre-order, and buy my Siren Song Socks at the same time? They feature very similar cables, and by the time you’ve finished the Siren Song socks, the Three Sirens Socks will be in live!
