Brocket features a lace pattern of interlocking “V”s reminiscent of a stag’s antlers running up the outside of each foot and leg. A brocket is a two year old red deer stag, who has smooth unbranching antlers – just like the lace pattern! Knit from the toe up with a gusset and heel flap, these socks are a great mix of relaxing knit and engaging pattern – perfect for travel knitting or chilling with a film!
The pattern is fully written and the lace is also charted so whichever way 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 Surprisingly Stretchy Bind-Off.
I knit these socks with Cat and Sparrow Eco-warrior Sock, and if you’d like to knit them with the same yarn, Rachael’s selling Brocket Sock Kits on her website with a choice of colours!
