We Love Knitting Socks
by Marina Gvozdeva
Yarn and Pattern
This kit contains a print copy of We Love Knitting Socks by Marina Gvozdeva and the yarn required to make the socks in three colour options
We Love Knitting Extra fine merino wool, 8ply DK
100g, 210m main colour
50g, 105m contrast colour
This will be more than enough yarn to make the socks and we have included enough to make a gauge swatch if you desire. A great option for the left over yarn is to make a second pair using the main colour of the first pair as the contrast colour for a second pair. All you need to do for this option is order another 100g skein of extrafine merino DK from the shop, which we will ship with your kit.
The average amount of yarn used for these socks is 130m (65gr) MC and 70m (35gr) CC
