The Cucumber Falls sock pattern is now available! Thanks to my awesome test knitters who will hopefully be sending me more photos soon.
The story of these socks begins with a set of sock batts that I got from a local fiber artist. When I’d spun the yarn, I wanted something special. I started searching through my stitch dictionaries, experimenting, and this was the result. The colors in the yarn reminded me of Cucumber Falls in Ohiopyle State Park here in Pennsylvania, so I named them Cucumber Falls Socks!
A note on gauge: Your gauge will depend on what size needle you’re using. My size large on size two needles was about 7-8 stitches per inch in stockinette stitch. A size medium on size one needles will likely end up around 9-10 stitches to the inch in stockinette.
100G fingering weight yarn. Solid or semi-solid colorways will work best.
US size 2 needles for large, US size 1 for medium. I used the magic loop method. This is a long pattern repeat, so will work best with Magic Loop or the two circular needles method, though you could use 5 DPNs if you wish.
Stitch Marker if desired for marking beginning of round
Tapestry Needle for weaving in ends
