Faux Fair Isle Socks


Well, I seem to be on a sock-knitting roll, so I started these self-patterning socks for my mom.

The yarn is Regia 4-ply Jacquard that has been in my stash for years. The yarn is fairly “tough” – there is nothing soft or squishy about it, but I think it will soften up with washing. It is 75% superwash wool and 25% nylon.
As is typical, my gauge was wrong (and YES I did knit a large gauge swatch) so the foot looks a little narrow. (56 stitches on #1’s.) My mom has narrower feet than I do and I can fit them on, so I think it will be ok.
