10/05 • DK TOE UP BRIOCHE SOCKS • Intermediate Knitting, October 5, 12, 19 & 26 (1-3 pm) Saturdays$100.00
These two color brioche socks are knit toe up in DK weight yarn using the magic loop method. The pattern is easily modified for any foot length with shaping at the heel for a snug fit. A simple textural brioche pattern mixed with a german short row heel makes for a comfy and quick knit! The smooth, densely knit footbed is ideal for a sturdy house sock-slipper kind of thing, which is how we envision wearing ours in California. Be sure to check out #dktoeupbriochesocks for inspiration! Everything Lavanya Patricella designs is gorgeous and exciting! She's really into brioche and these socks make a great intro to the stitch if you've never tried it.
