The Pattern

Liz Corke says about her pattern: “Stravaig is a Scots word meaning to wander, these socks feature a lace pattern with a zigzagging path wandering from side to side up the side of the socks from toe to cuff. Knit from the toe up with a gusset and heel flap, with a delicate lace pattern on each sock, these socks are the perfect mix of relaxing knit and engaging pattern.”

Pattern requirements:

  • 100g 4ply Falkland Corriedale no-nylon sock yarn
  • 2.5 mm (US 1.5) circular needles, 80 cm (32”) or longer or DPNs/preferred method for knitting in the round
  • 4 (per sock) stitch markers
  • Cable needle (optional)
  • Yarn needle for sewing in ends

The pattern includes instructions for sizes S (17.5cm/7″ circumference), M (20cm/8″), L (22.5cm/9″), XL (25cm/10″)

You can purchase the pattern individually from Liz Corke’s site here.

The Yarn

The pattern is created with a skein of 4ply Falkland Corriedale high-twist, no nylon yarn in the colourway “Violet Shadows”, although any other semi-solid or tonal yarn would work well.

This yarn is 100% Falkland Corriedale. It is spun in Yorkshire and dyed in Dorset. Each 100g skein is approximately 400m in length. Due to the dyeing process no two skeins are identical.

Although this yarn does not contain Nylon, it is suitable for socks because it is made from Corriedale which is a sturdy yet soft wool. It has been spun with a high twist to add extra strength to it. You can read more about this yarn base here. The yarn has not been superwash treated so requires gentle hand washing unless you intend to create felt.

Please note that colours may vary on computer monitors, so the shade may not be identical to what you see on your screen.

The Markers (Optional Extra)

You can choose to add a set of stitch markers to your sock kit. These can be any of the stitch markers available at Bluebell Yarns. You can see the full range more closely here.
