Just Jealous Socks
The Just Jealous Socks are inspired by that wild, ridiculous, beyond-amazing yarn you just adore! Need something truly unique and over-the-top for that skein? This is it! Pooling, speckled, both… doesn’t matter. With these socks on your feet, people might stare… but don’t worry, they’re just jealous!
These cuff-down socks use cables of long, elongated stitches to create a standout surface texture on top of the fabric. Those elongated stitches also highlight the subtle (and not-so-subtle!) colour details we all love in handpainted yarns. They feature a rounded Chinstrap short row heel and a twisted rib cuff. They are available in three standard adult foot circumferences and the foot length is adjustable to fit.
This pattern requires the knitter to be able to knit a small circumference in the round (the pattern is method-neutral to suit your preferred technique for socks) and clearly explains all techniques required. All cables can be done without a cable needle. Within the pattern you will find links to useful video tutorials as well, so the pattern is accessible to an intermediate sock knitter.
The texture on these socks stands out in many different colourways, from sophisticated tonals to yarn that is best described as “SO. MANY. COLOURS.” I do not recommend using a self-patterning or self-striping yarn for this pattern… but, then again, who am I to tell you what to do with your yarn?
