Gràdh

Gràdh means love or cherish in Scottish Gaelic and features a delicate pattern mirrored on each foot. The pattern is stunning with speckled yarns and also works beautifully with semi-solid yarns. Knit from the toe up with a gusset and heel flap, they’re sure to make an impression! With three widths and flexible length fitting, these are a great pattern for everyone.

Gràdh is the second pattern in my Socks in Love collection after Mànran. Three more patterns (Togair, Dìleas and Gaol) will be added during the summer. Previous purchases from my Socks in Love collection will be deducted from the price of the eBook, so whether you buy one or two to try out first, or jump straight in to the full ebook, you’ll always pay the same price!

The pattern is fully written and charted so however you like to read your patterns, you’re covered! The pattern has been tech edited and test knitted. There’s a screenshot of the pattern, and a list of the stitches used at the bottom of the photos. You will also need to know how to do Judy’s Magic Cast-On and a stretchy bind off like Jeny’s Suprisingly Stretchy Bind-Off.
