It’s not often I let my husband help choose the name for my patterns, but this time I think he was right - this pattern does look like train tracks!

These socks are knit toe-up, with a traditional flap and gusset, and the colours for the pattern inverted on the sole..

Sizes - measured around midfoot

  • Small - 7” (17.75cm)
  • Medium - 8” (20.25cm)
  • Large - 9” (22.75cm)

Gauge - 9 sts x 10 rounds = 1"/2.5cm colourwork in the round

In terms of the amount of yarn you need, for all sizes I would suggest 100g of main colour; for the contrast you should be fine with just 50g.

I used a semi-solid from the fabulous indie dyers Life in the Long Grass (LITLG) for the main colour - the large colour blocks mean that the variation won’t overwhelm the pattern. For the contrast I used Artesano Definition sock yarn, but any solid sock yarn would work well.

The instructions for the construction of the socks are all written, the colourwork pattern is only charted.
