The Kuopio Socks are an homage to one of my closest friends from Finland. Our paths diverge and merge over and over again, just like the stitches in the pattern panel featured in these socks, and I haven’t given up hope yet that I can convince her to come back to Berlin from the cold north of her home country. The socks are named after her hometown - I have beautiful memories of a joint trip to Kuopio, spending hours sitting at the lake and watching the sun set together.
They’re knit toe-up with a gusset and heel flap heel and adjustable foot and leg length to make sure you can knit a pair of socks that really fits you.
The pattern has been professionally tech edited and test knit.
