LAUNCH DAY PROMOTION! To celebrate this new release, from now until May 6, you can get 50% off my existing sock patterns when you purchase Parky! No code is needed, just add Parky and any of my other sock patterns to you cart and the discount will be automatically applied!

Say hello, to the Parky socks! Twisted stitches and delicate bobbles create a striking yet super intuitive knit. Worked over only eight rows, the cable pattern is easily memorized and emerges quickly, inviting you to knit round after round. The heel is shaped with an increased gusset and Eye Of Partridge heel flap. The twisted cable pattern on the front is mirrored on the back of the leg which flows seamlessly into the twisted rib cuff.

If relaxing, engaging knits with a big impact are your thing, I think you’ll really enjoy this pattern.

Happy knitting! Claire x
