Item details

**This listing is for a KNITTING PATTERN ONLY. Not a finished pair of socks, not yarn in any form. Just the pattern to knit a pair for your very own.**

Do you like owls? Do you like socks? We may have a found a perfect match!

Stately owls perch on these unique large-motif (but not intarsia) colourwork socks. The soles are striped so that the owl motif can be comfortably worked across the instep and the foot. Also, stripey socks are fun! Who can say no to stripey-soled socks?

Use as many or as few colours as you like for your socks! This would be a great way to use up odd bits of sock yarn.

The pattern is a clear, concise, 5-page .pdf file with large charts and images, which I will send via your PayPal email address as soon as I possibly can after I receive payment.

Size: Women’s Medium (or any foot\/leg that is 8” in circumference.)

Gauge: 8 stitches = 1 inch (2.5 cm) in Stockinette st.

Yarn: 2 skeins of each of Elann Sock It To Me Essential 4 Ply (229 yd \/ 50 g) in Butternut (colourway 7918) (Main Colour – MC) and Olive (colourway 46335) (Contrast Colour – CC), or any other comparable fingering weight yarns in a comparable weightthat complement each other.

Needles: One set of five (5) double pointed needles in US 2 (2.75 mm) or size necessary to obtain gauge.

Notions: A stitch marker to mark beginning of round (optional,) and a sewing needle to weave in ends.

Skills Needed: Increasing and decreasing, knitting in the round, stranded knitting, twisted stitches, and chart reading.

Enjoy the owls!

Really nice! Pattern is a little confusing in places on the first read, but nothing that a few minutes of thinking won't sort out, even for a novice at reading patterns... Thanks!

Returns & exchanges

As the nature of some of my products are digital, I regret that I am unable to offer refunds on any purchases of these items.

PLEASE read my listings carefully - they are for KNITTING PATTERNS ONLY. If you complete a transaction thinking you are getting a pair of hand knitted mittens for $6 USD you are mistaken. In such a case refunds will not be offered. Caveat emptor.
