Join our KAL for the Queen of Beads Too sock! We will begin on July 10, 2023, in the Sivia Harding forum here on Ravelry. We will cheer you on as you knit this fabulous beaded sock, with great aplomb! Enjoy having access to Sivia along with Catherine of Gauge Dyeworks as you navigate through the tubular cast-on, the beaded brocade pattern, and the excellent fit of the heel flap and gusset. If you use Gauge Dyeworks yarn, you’ll have the added incentive of knitting a fascinating fade. Did I say addictive? Kits including yarn and beads are available now from Gauge Dyeworks. Order early to have your kit in time to start!

The iconic Queen of Beads sock is now available again as the Queen of Beads Too, completely re-written, in a fresh, vastly improved format with new charts and photos! This top-down sock requires beads to be strung before casting on, creating a queenly beaded brocade pattern on the leg, heel flap, and instep. Option for high instep included, as well as easy instructions for a tubular cast on that you’ll want to use again and again.
