Homegoing Socks

Homegoing Socks

The Homegoing Socks are a beautiful tribute to Yaa Gyasi's best-selling novel, and feature lots of simple cables and twisted stitches which create the Twin Trees patterning on the leg.

 

Available in nine sizes, these socks are knit toe-up only and designed with Merino y Vino yarn. They are of intermediate difficulty, but we also offer a Free Homegoing Socks Knitting Class to help you get started.

    The needle size listed is the needle size used to make the sample, you may need to go up 1-2 needle sizes to get a fabric that you like. Most knitters do well with US size 2 (2.75 mm) & if you are a tight or newer knitter you may want to try a US size 3 (3.25 mm). If you know your standard needle size for sock knitting, use that instead of what is listed in the pattern (the size that gives you gauge).

     

    Make sure that your begining of round marker is different from your other markers so you can tell the difference. Locking markers are recommended .
