Jökull is a unisex sock pattern that was named after the Icelandic word for glacier. The stranded pattern was inspired by the yokes of the typical lopapeysa or Icelandic sweater.

It is a top-down sock, featuring stranded knitting, a heelflap heel, and a round toe.

There are 3 sizes available: Small (64 stitches), Medium (72 stitches) and Large (80 stitches).

You’ll need approximately 90 to 130 grams of fingering weight sock yarn in the following amounts:

  • Approximately 50-80 grams of main colour
  • Approximately 30-40 grams of contrast colour 1
  • Approximately 5-10 grams of contrast colour 2

It is also possible to work the pattern with just 2 colours: in that case add the required amount for contrast colour 2 to the amount required for the main colour.

Gauge: 8 stitches and 10 rows = 2.5 cm in stranded stockinette

Other materials required are a set of knitting needles for working small circumferences in the round and darning needle.

The sample was knit up in Garnstudio DROPS Fabel.

The pattern contains separate charts per colour scheme for those working with either a light or a dark main colour.

This pattern contains 7 pages. Basic instructions are 3 pages and then there are 2 additional pages of charts for one colour scheme.
