Meaning flirtation or dalliance, Mànran 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, these socks are the perfect mix of relaxing knit and engaging pattern. With three widths and flexible length fitting, these are a great pattern for everyone.
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.
This is my first flirtation with this stitch pattern. Four more patterns are coming this year!
