Item details

This kit and sock pattern are inspired by the Norwegian Setesdal Lusekofte, or lice jacket, of the late 19th century in the Setesdal Valley. The heel features a star motif. (There are three star motifs, depending on the size knitted.) The socks are worked in color-stranded knitting, from the top to the toe, and are constructed with the Band Heel and the Wide Toe. Information on the Double Cast on, knitting with a yarn in each hand, and Kitchener Stitch is included.

The sizes are based on the leg circumference:
Small (Child- 6")
Medium (Woman- 8")
Large (Man-10")

The Small and Medium sized kits hold one skein each of black and white. The Large sized kit has two skeins of black and one of white. The gauge in 2-color stockinette stitch (the lus pattern) is 8 sts/ inch, 10 rnds/ inch

The pattern includes technique boxes and photos, theory boxes, charts, a glossary, bibliography, and schematic.
