Another wonderful and unique knitting design from Ursa Major Knits!

Now I have to be honest here and admit that I suffer greatly from Second Sock Syndrome.  I have made so many many single socks and simply never could get myself to make the second one.  Fortunately one of my sons loves to pad around his apartment in handknit socks and doesn't mind at all if they don't match or if one has ruffles and another has beads as long as his feet stay warm.  

So why do I mention this?  Because I think that this design will be so interesting and each second sock just enough different from the first that even I will manage to made a pair!  

The Design

Here is how Chrissie describes this lovely pattern: 

Sockodile is perfect for all sock yarns with a color gradient like Zauberball, Lana Grossa Mille Colori, Noro Sock, Mini Mochi, and many more. It is a fun to knit project as you will always be compelled to see the effect the next color will offer.

Sockodile is knitted toe-upIf this is your first attempt to knit socks 
from the toe up, this pattern will guide you through all the steps using magic loop.

Sockodile is modular, but you will join all pieces as you go, so no seaming is involved.

Sockodile offers written and charted instructions as well asgraphics to demonstrate the architecture of this particular design. You can choose between a 64 and a 60 stitch version and you will be given a table with all sock sizes to knit your Sockodile socks in your size.

Sockodile offers a plethora of photo tutorials on all the necessary techniques.

Happy Knitting!

The Yarn

As Chrissie mentions, Mini Mochi is a perfect yarn for this design. What is needed is between 380 - 420 yards (347 - 384 m), depending on the size you choose to make.  

Mini Mochi is 80% Merino/ 20% Nylon (Polyamide) with 195 (178m) to each 50 gram ball.  It is a smooth knit with a very slight fuzz to it -- I love the look and the feel.  

Each colorway is dyed in very long color repeats so the look you get will be similar to what you see in Chrissie's original pieces here.

Bear in mind though that she used a different yarn for hers (Schoppel-Wolle Crazy Zauberball) -- our yarns can be seen in the inset photos on the top picture and again below that.  The other photos of Chrissie's original socks are shown so you can see the design. 

You might choose a kit of either two skeins (= 390 yards) or three (= 585 yards), as long as supplies last. 

The cost you see under the top picture on this web page is for a two-skein kit.  You will note on the drop-down menu that thee skeins adds some in price. 

The Colorways

Here are the colorways you can choose from for this kit: 

1.  Neptune Rainbow is a wonderful blend of sea tones.  I see green into turquoise into blue into purple and starting all over again.  A deep and rich cool mix that has a marvelous velvety look to the whole

2. Spice Market is a warm melody of colors, evoking images of exotic places and sweet smelling sands.  I see a cream going into an amber gold into golden brown and mustard, which morphs into a red-violet and eventually purple.  Quite unusual and most lovely indeed -- and great for us armchair travelers.  

The Pattern

The kit will not automatically include the pattern. I know some knitters will prefer to get it directly as a PDF file of the pattern from Chrissie via her Ravelry web page. If that is how you would like to go, then set the "Pattern" drop-down menu to "No Pattern Needed." This is what you should do if you prefer your patterns in the Ravelry library.

Alternatively, if you would prefer a printed copy (it is 22 pages), please make sure the "Pattern" drop-down menu is set to that and we'll get that to you in your kit.

We also can send the pattern to you via email and if you choose that option, I will send it to you just before shipping out your kit.
