I got pictures yesterday of the Pinstripe Sock I worked up in Isager yarns for Knit-Purl to take to Sock Summit as a kit. The pattern will also be available later as a download and for wholesale purchase. If you’re going to Sock Summit, check out Knit-Purl’s booth. They’ll have it in a bunch of other colors in the kits too, some bolder than this. I like subtle
The Isager yarn was a lot of fun to work with. Most of the sock is worked with one strand of Viscolin (50% linen/50% rayon) and one strand of Alpaca 1 (100% alpaca). Working them both together gives a soft, strong, and sturdy fabric. The pinstripes are worked by knitting the pinstripe column with just the linen and then slipping it on every other round. It makes the pinstripes subtle and classy.
