Knit your own Heart Socks using these clearly-written instructions by knitwear designer Jackie E-S of HeartStrings FiberArts.
Pamper someone (even yourself!) with these socks featuring a dainty lace hearts pattern.
Adult medium. 250 yds sportweight yarn, 6½ stitches/inch, size US 2 / 3.0 mm needles suggested. Pattern includes charted instructions. Shown above in 2-ply handspun yarn blend of silk, wool, mohair and alpaca. Charted instructions.
Tip: If you aren't a handspinner, a good yarn choice to get a similar look is to use 2 or 3 strands held together of Helen's Lace silk/wool by Lorna's Laces in color #44 Grays Corner.
- Another example of these socks, this time knitted in variegated handspun silk/wool yarn. Don't you love the subtle variations and soothing gray and pink colors in these socks?
