A modelled pair of socks with a rippling cable pattern up the side, knit in grey yarn with blue, orange and white specklesToday I’m bringing you a pair of socks that has everything I love! It’s toe up socks. It’s got a simple pattern that’s easy to learn. It’s got a fun pattern that will keep you coming back for more. And, possibly most importantly, it’s got speckles! If socks are your thing or you want to give them a try, this is the pefect pattern for you!

Killieleepie features gorgeous rippling slipped stitch cables up the side of each foot. A modelled pair of socks with a rippling cable pattern up the side, knit in grey yarn with blue, orange and white specklesThey’re fun to knit and super easy to knit without a cable needle. I bought the gorgeous yarn for these socks back in summer of 2023. I was waiting for the perfect time to turn it into a pair of socks, then in February 2024 the dyer I bought it from closed up shop. So I decided it was definitely time to get them made! 

Unfortunately, this means you won’t be able to get the same colourway I used, but fortunately I know a few other dyers who produce gorgeous yarn with the same yarn base! Check out Eden Cottage Yarns Brimham High Twist; Third Vault Yarns Vortex Sock, LottieKnits Little Bird Sock is very similar but merino instead of BFL; Giddy Yarns BFL Nylon 4ply and of course, substituting this yarn with your own favourite sock yarn is always an option! If you have any other suggestions let us know in the comments!
