Elvenpath is a cuff down sock pattern with an eye of partridge heel flap and double gusset decreases at the bottom of the foot. These feminine socks feature a leaf lace pattern and several small lace and cable panels. Beads can be added for a bit of extra flair. The pattern was inspired by the character Arwen from The Lord of the Rings, the name comes from a song by the Finnish metal band Nightwish.
There are 3 sizes available: Small (56 stitches), Medium (64 stitches) and Large (72 stitches).
The pattern is worked at a gauge of 8 stitches and 11 rows = 2.5 cm in stockinette.
You’ll need 70-90 grams of fingering weight sock yarn.
Limited edition yarn + beads + pattern kits are available in my webshop.
Other materials required are a set of knitting needles for working small circumferences in the round, a cable needle if you use one for cabling, at least 3 stitch markers, and a tapestry needle. Optional: 104 size 8/0 beads and a beading tool of choice (e.g. a crochet hook, super floss, etc.) for fully beaded socks.
The original sample was knit up in Het Wolbeest BFL Sok in colourway Elvenpath.
This pattern contains 6 pages. Basic instructions are 2.5 pages and then there is half a page of charts used by all sizes and 1 page of charts per size.
