The Complete Set

I don’t think there’s much more I can say about this rib pattern or this colourway having used them both so many times before but I’m still in love with both of them! When designing each part of the collection, they’ve all had different challenges. For the cowl it was just deciding the width of the rib section; with the mitts, it was the positioning on the hand and for the hat, it was figuring out the crown decreases. 

For the socks, the challenge was the heels. Figuring out how to knit it (with the short rows and heel flap), how to keep the length fitting as flexible as possible and finally figuring out how to write the pattern, clearly and as simply as possible! I am absolutely in love with the results though and it was so worth all the effort. Isn’t the effect beautiful?

After the heel is done, the instep and the heel pattern join up and travel up the rest of the foot together and I love the final effect. I really hope you’ve enjoyed this journey with me over the last few months. I’m really looking forward to wearing the whole set together when it gets cold again here!
