Another wonderful wonderful new design from Sivia Harding.
The Waterlily Socks are understated elegance: a sinuous beaded stem flows alongside lace lily pads down to an open waterlily flower. As Sivia writes, this design evokes lazy summer afternoons, and you can knit your own summer memories into yours!
The beading technique is very easy - just let pre-strung beads rest between stitches.
Sivia recommends any solid, semi-solid, or subtle handpainted sock yarn. This pattern is not suitable for self-patterning sock yarns.
The pattern requires 112 size 8/0 beads and some type of threader to string the beads.
If you purchase the pattern plus enough fingering weight yarn to make these socks (370 yards is what is recommended) we will include enough beads as our gift to you for a superbly glorious pair.
You will also need 2 - US 1/2.25 mm circular needles for knitting socks in the round.
Pattern includes full written instructions and charts.
Size: Women’s medium. Leg measures 6.5" from cuff to ankle.
