Lady Patience is a cuff down sock pattern featuring twisted stitches and a bit of lace. A slipped stitch heel flap and double gusset decreases on the bottom of the foot give these socks a great fit. The pattern was inspired by one of the most interesting characters in the Farseer trilogy by Robin Hobb: Lady Patience. She is known for being a bit of an eccentric and I think these socks would be right up her alley.
There are 3 sizes available: Small (64 stitches), Medium (72 stitches) and Large (80 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 + 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.
The original sample was knit up in CoopKnits Socks Yeah! in colourway Axinite.
