I love DK weight socks. Love them. They are warm and cozy in the winter, and as a product knitter, it pleases me that they are a fairly quick knit. When looking for DK sock patterns to knit last year, I was surprised at the (relatively) small number of available patterns available…you know, when compared to fingering and sport weight sock patterns.
Earlier this year, Carla at Georgian Bay Fibre Company told me that she would be releasing a new DK yarn in the spring. She then mentioned that this was a base with a difference: it had nylon, something that is lacking in so many DK weight yarns. I could not help but jump at the chance to design some socks that would take advantage of her new Kilcoursie DK yarn.
So today, I am excited to introduce my cabled DK weight sock, Signal Hill. (Why yes, I am aware that my ex-pat is showing again!)
Lots of 1×1 cables mean that it’s intricate but that by cabling without a cable needle, it goes pretty darned quickly! The pattern is for sale exclusively on Ravelry for now. (Someday, I will figure out other pattern sites!)
Such an exciting start to my week!
