Rockin’ Robin Socks Knitting Kit

From Devon with Love | Sock Knitting

These are lovely Christmassy socks, with cute pairs of robins round the leg and a festive stripe through the leg and foot and a contrasting cuff, heel and toe.

Suitable for beginners or intermediate knitters, with some knitting knowledge. The pattern can be adapted depending on your experience of stranded colourwork. The robins section requires the use of 3 strands of yarn for the colourwork, but if you're not comfortable with that, then you can add in the final red detail of the robins and hearts when you have completed your sock. The socks are knitted from the cuff down, with a heel flap and gusset and kitchener stitch to graft the toe.The socks are knitted using either a set of 5 double pointed needles (this is how the pattern is written) or circular needles and the magic loop method if you prefer.
The pattern is written for 3 sizes, small (UK 5-6), medium (UK 6-7) and large (UK 7-8), but is very easily customizable to fit your own foot. As you're knitting from the cuff down, you can slip your work over your foot to check the fit of the leg, heel and foot as you go. There is enough yarn in the kit to make one pair up to size Large.

The kit is supplied in a gift box, and includes:
- Full colour printed pattern booklet, with step by step instructions
- All the yarn you need to make one pair of socks (please note colours may vary from images depending on what yarn is available, but will be as close to those shown as possible).
- 3 stitch markers
- A darning needle to sew in the ends

For this project you will need a set of 2.50mm Double Pointed Needles and a sewing up needle.
