Stravaig is a Scots word meaning to wander, these socks feature a lace pattern with a zigzagging path wandering from side to side up the side of the socks from toe to cuff. Knit from the toe up with a gusset and heel flap, with a delicate lace pattern on each sock, these socks are the perfect mix of relaxing knit and engaging pattern.

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 Bluebell Yarns’ lovely Corriedale No-Nylon Sock, and if you’d like to knit them with the same yarn, she’s selling Stravaig Sock Kits on her website with a choice of colours!
