Brollied socks

Brollied socks, in West Yorkshire Spinners Signature 4-Ply
Pattern by Helena Callum, published in Knit Now magazine, April 2015

My latest pattern, for a pair of toe-up socks, is to be published in Issue 46 (April 2015) of Knit Now magazine. The issue will be on sale in supermarkets, newsagents and craft stores. And you can subscribe, or buy a single issue from the shop, via the publisher's website

Cheerful umbrellas can brighten a rainy day. My aim with these joyfully coloured socks, featuring a stack of brollies, was to brighten any day, rainy or not! The toe-up socks are surprisingly quick to make because every second round of the ribbing pattern is a knit round.

The socks are worked in the round, from toe to cuff. There are three sizes in the pattern, designed to fit shoe sizes from 35 to 43 with negative ease.
