You can so sew socks!

I will say this..I can knit, and I adore hand knitted socks...but I lack the patience to stick it out. For me, it needs to happen NOW! So I got the idea to sew some socks. Some adorable stripey socks- using Crafty Mamas gorgeous stripey knits. The Hilco Campante and Campan knits are just the ticket. Their cotton/elastomeric blend give comfort and zing ( excellent recovery). So we have...


Pattern : Jalie 2453. I have had this about 2 years and I think it may be discontinued, but if anyone wants I can try and get it when I order this month.

There is a similar Kwik Sew , #3806, and I can get that too. ( we stock Kwik Sew as well!). 

I am quite pleased with how these turned out...the perfect project to use up your little bits!

I would really like a copy of this pattern if you can get it. Need to order a few other things too but will hold off and see if you can get the pattern before I place an order.

Hi! I wonder if it's still possible to get the pattern from these? And if so, what does it cost?

When I last checked with Jalie this pattern was no longer being printed- but it is going to available as an epattern soon.

This Kwik Sew I stock, is similar.
