Kethry pattern now available!
Kethry is finally ready for mass consumption! The pattern is a clear, concise, 4-page .pdf file with large charts and images.
Here are some other important things you might like to know about Kethry:
Size: Women’s Medium (or any foot/leg that is 8” in circumference,) or slightly larger. The lace pattern is very stretchy.
Gauge: 9 stitches = 1 inch (2.5 cm) in Stockinette st.
Yarn: 440 yards of fingering weight yarn, preferably a solid or semi-solid colourway, to best show off the pattern. To make a pair of socks as shown here use 2 skeins of Knit Picks Essential in Grass (231 yards / 50 g per sock.)
Needles: One set of five (5) double pointed needles in US 1 (2.25 mm) or size necessary to obtain gauge.
Notions: A stitch marker to mark beginning of round (optional,) and a sewing needle to weave in ends.
Skills Needed: Knitting in the round, lace, twisted stitches, chart reading and grafting. No cabling skills are required in the making of this sock.
To purchase: If you are a Ravelry user, please use the "buy now" button under Kethry's picture in the sidebar to the right to pay via PayPal to receive an expiring link to download the pattern instantly.
If you are not on Ravelry, when you send payment of $6 USD via PayPal to janetree (at) gmail (dot) com I will promptly personally send you a copy of the pattern to your email as provided (within 8 hours
but most likely immediately.)
I would encourage all beginner-intermediate / intermediate sock knitters to give this pattern a try as it is far more complicated looking than it actually is to knit. Sam is already knitting her own Kethry and it's looking great.
