Pattern details:

The Soft & Strong Socks celebrate friendship among women - friendship that is both soft and strong, that grows beautiful flowers based on a firm foundation, that blossoms and blooms over time. When women work together, like in this collaboration, and subsequently become friends, we create a very special kind of magic that we hope you feel with every stitch of this pattern.

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. 

You will receive the electronic pattern as a Ravelry download link after you’ve purchased the kit. Please add a note during the checkout process if you’re not on Ravelry so that we can send you the pattern as a PDF.

Yarn details:

Our 100% Corriedale was sourced from a farm here in the US and custom spun for us by Battenkill Fibers into a beautiful sport weight yarn. As with all our yarn, it was hand dyed in small batches using only plants and natural extracts. For this special collaboration with HLH Designs, we wanted to create a colorway inspired by our own friendship and by the strong women in our lives. We think this “soft and strong” shade embodies the essence of the collaboration perfectly! 

Yarn specs:

  • 100% Corriedale

  • Grown, spun, & botanically hand dyed in the US!

  • 3-ply Sport weight

  • 3.5 oz ~ 308 yards / 100 gm ~ 282 m

  • US 2-6 / 2.75-4 mm

  • Non-superwash

  • Wash by hand in lukewarm water. Lay flat to dry.

Due to its natural characteristics, Corriedale is a resilient fiber with a lot of loft and elasticity. Soft enough next to skin, yet durable, this yarn would make beautiful, hard-wearing garments and socks! 

Project bag details:

All HLH Designs project bags are made by hand by our small team in Berlin. They consist of only natural, sustainable materials that are sourced in Europe.

For the Soft & Strong Kits, we’ve chosen a light sea green contrast fabric that works beautifully with the light raspberry yarn color.
