Sock club: Waterfall by Anne Hanson
Our latest sock club pattern is Waterfall by Anne Hanson and has a pretty, open lace pattern.
From indie designer Anne Hanson, Waterfall is a charming sock pattern that will wow knitters and non-knitters alike. The complicated-looking lace lace pattern is just 4 stitches wide and 6 rows long, making it easy to learn as you work through the sock. By the time you’ve got to the ankle of this top-down sock, you probably won’t even be looking at the pattern.
The strong patterning means that this sock won’t be overwhelmed by more patterned yarns. We’ve chosen Malabrigo Sock, as it has both solid and semi-variegated colourways. The yarn is a delicious one to work with and a delight to wear. It’s strong twist helps the lace pop and a single skein is enough for a pair of luxurious socks.
While complete beginners may find the Waterfall socks a challenge, it’s not a particularly hard one. Hansen’s pattern is clearly written with full instructions and each step, including turning the heel and grafting the toe, is explained thoroughly.
The pattern comes in three sizes to fit feet measuring 6-10in. The designer also gives you the option to create more ease around the calf, ideal for a wider leg or if you prefer longer socks.
