How to Knit Icelandic Socks with Hélène Magnússon
This free project is an excerpt from Socks of Iceland by Hélène Magnússon (contains 17 socks patterns with an Icelandic flair €29)
The Mosi family keeps growing! After the Mosi Mittens and the matching Mosi hat and sweater, Hélène Magnússon has designed matching socks using her Katla yarn–the only Icelandic DK sock yarn made of pure Icelandic lambswool with a dash of silk. The little motifs on a green background are reminiscent of the thick and spongy moss (mosi in Icelandic) that covers the lava fields. The socks are knitted from the cuff down with an afterthought heel and a wedge toe.
