Memory Lane Socks

Memory Lane Socks


The Memory Lane Socks were designed during my time in San Francisco earlier this year and will forever hold memories of my weeks in the Bay Area. They combine two of my favorite ways to add texture to a pattern: small cables and twisted stitches. A center cable is framed with dia- mond-shaped twisted stitches and mock cables that are echoed on the heel flap and the back of the leg.

They’re knit toe-up with a gusset and heel flap and adjustable foot and leg length to make sure you can knit a pair of socks that really fits you.

The yarn used to design this pattern is Green Mountain Spinnery Sock Art Forest, a blend of 70% Targhee and 30% Tencel® Lyocell. It’s incredibly springy and the addition of Lyocell as a natural strengthener makes sure you’ll be able to wear these socks for years to come.
