This sock kit contains my pattern "Swedish Ullared Socks" and skeins of red and black 100% wool, Frangipani 5-ply Guernsey yarn, spun in Cornwall, in the UK. The sock pattern is inspired by the Swedish man’s garment, the Ullared, of the late 19th century. These Ullared socks include the Two-color Double Cast-on, tips on adding horizontal stripes in ribbing, the traditional dotted diamond motifs of the Ullared, and the "Auto" heel and Star toe shaping. There are four sizes: the first three require one skein each of black and red yarn and the largest size requires two skeins of black and one of red yarn.
The size range is based on the circumference of the sock leg: Small-children (6.75"), Medium-medium women (8.25"), Large- large woman/small man (9.75"), Extra Large- large man (11.25"). The Small, Medium and Large kits contain one skein each of the red and the black; the Extra Large kit has two skeins of red and one of black.
The gauge, worked in 2-color stockinette stitch, is 8 stitches/ inch, 10 rounds/ inch
The pattern includes techniques boxes, a schematic, a glossary, bibliography, and chart.
