Product Details

Cuff up, or folded down for two different styles. Colourful linen stitch, and I-cord details, for added interest. And an uncommon linen stitch heel flap too!

Knit colourful and happy stripes in your socks, and sing "somewhere over the rainbow".

Designed for Sock Madness 8, the Rainbow Pipes and Linen Stitch were Round 3 of the competition.

A few words about the design elements in Rainbow Pipes and Linen Stitch Socks:

  • Linen stitch provides a wonderful texture similar to that of woven fabric. Playing with colours adds a new dimension to linen stitch, and creates a fabric that is equally lovely fabrics on both sides. This naturally led me to create socks that would best show the two fabrics by wearing the cuff up, or folded down.
  • I-cords can be addictive. Knitting a very long I-cord is not appealing, but combining short I-cords in multiple colours opens the door to playing with colours in another way. And helps create the perfect tab for a cuff too!

You need less than 10 g / 40 m of each of the 7 contrasting colours.
