Hamnavoe Sock Kit Colourway 3
Hamnavoe Socks kit, designed by Lesley Smith. these socks are knitted with traditional Fair-Isle colours and patterns. The yarn (Shetland Heritage) is knit doubled to give a thicker sock and knit at quite a firm tension. Both sizes follow the same pattern but the gents version is knit on a slightly larger needle with a looser tension of 27sts & 31rs over 10cm. The socks are knit from the cuff down with an afterthought heel which is knit the same as the toe. The kit contains the yarn and the pattern.
