Item details

This is a PDF pattern.

Fort Grey was originally published in amirisu's Issue 11 - Winter 2017. This listing also includes a translated Japanese version of the pattern. Photography by amirisu.

A pair of toe-up socks designed with two types of stitch patterns, inspired by the designer’s trip to Guernsey Island. The resulting fabric is stretchy and interesting to knit throughout. Solid colors are recommended for this project to show of the patterns.

Light fingering weight yarn Approximately 327 (377) yard, 299 (345) m
2 (2) balls of CoopKnit’s Socks Yeah! (75% merino wool, 25% nylon; 231 yards / 211 m, 50g)
Sample shown in Axinite

A US 1 (2.25 mm) 32” / 80 cm (or longer) circular needle A US 0 (2.00 mm) 32” / 80 cm (or longer) circular needle Or, needles to obtain gauge

Gauge (after blocking)
38 stitches & 52 rows = 4” / 10 cm in Stockinette stitch with US 1 (2.25 mm) needle

Finished foot circumference: S (M) = 7 (8)” / 18 (20) cm Finished leg length: S (M) = 61⁄2 (7)” / 16.5 (18) cm Sample size: Small with 9” / 23 cm foot length

Tapestry needle, cable needle (optional)

This pattern is written as if the knitter is using the Magic Loop Method. The top of the foot is worked across the first needle and the sole of the foot is worked across the second needle. DPNs can be used instead. Work instructions for first needle across 1st and 2nd DPNs, for second needle work across 3rd and 4th DPNs. The cables consist of two stitches and can be easily switched around without a cable needle but this would be up to the knitter.
