Braes and Glens

Purple socks with a textured chevron pattern repeated up the sockTo be honest, when I started knitting I really didn’t have any desire to knit my own socks, however since joining Instagram I’ve seen so many gorgeous photos of hand knit socks that I had to give it a go for myself and once I’d tried I fell in love! Since knitting my first sock I constantly have a pair on the needles so designing my own socks was inevitable! I’m so happy with Braes and Glens and I really hope you’ll love it too! Once you have the first chevron in place the rest will flow from there so it’s a very intuitive pattern and you shouldn’t need to be glued to the pattern. The pattern has a gusset and heel flap – which I find gives me the best fit. I love the Eye of Partridge stitch on the heel flap – it’s my favourite heel stitch!

Worked from the toe up, the pattern uses Judy’s Magic cast on for a super neat toe and it comes with three sizes – 7″, 8″ and 9″.
