Homegoing Socks Pattern & Class Release!


Homegoing Socks - a handknitting pattern with a tree of life design on the leg and cables on the top of the feet for the tree trunks.

HELLO!


I've just released the pattern for the 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. Get your needles ready and start knitting your own Homegoing Socks today!


The pattern is available to download in the Yumi Yarns Shop as well as through Ravelry.


Happy knitting! 😘

Shaina ^_^
