Festive mosaic color work knit wreaths top a beautiful lace pattern that tapers down the ankle toward the foot on the Velvet Wreath socks. This new design was packaged as a surprise in the December PostStitch kit with 3 balls of Fluffy Fingering merino yarn for recipients to make their own pair. And now you can make your own set of these gorgeous socks!

Socks on Saturday: Nutcracker socks called Stahlbaum Haus

Each Socks on Saturday will highlight a sock pattern that you can use to knit yourself a pair of socks with Ewe Ewe Fluffy Fingering yarn.

Since it’s the first of December I thought we’d get extra festive with some nutcrackers and poinsettia! You know how I love my holiday knits. :) Anyway… Meet the Stahlbaum Haus free sock knitting pattern.

I love these festive socks! I think they’d look great in Fluffy Fingering merino yarn in our new Red Velvet color or even the Forest Fern. Green or red would work on these since there’s poinsettia flowers, trees, nutcrackers, falling snow. You could get really crazy and grab a ball of each color and use the red and green on different rows!

Full of texture, Fidra is a hat knitting pattern that combines stockinette stitch with garter stitch in intriguing peaks. It looks really fun to knit and it looks great on everyone it seems!

Fidra would knit perfectly in Ewe Ewe Baa Baa Bulky yarn. Our Vanilla color has such a nice creamy tone that can mimic the sample in the photo.

Socks on Saturday: Calluna Socks

Each Socks on Saturday will highlight a sock pattern that you can use to knit yourself a pair of socks with Ewe Ewe Fluffy Fingering yarn. Today’s socks came as a submission from knitting designer Meaghan Schmaltz (check out her sock patterns!). She fell in love with the amazing stitches on the Calluna Socks and I totally agree. Look at these beauties!

The Calluna Socks designed by Becky Sorensen have incredible elongated cable stitches called caliper cables. I don’t think I’ve ever seen these before or if I have they’ve never been combined like this! I love the dramatic chevron they create.

Our yarns have a unique twist that really helps define amazing stitch patterns that you work so hard to create. I think a lighter, softer shade of Fluffy Fingering merino yarn would really make these socks shine.
