Designed by Verity Castledine, Truly Hooked
Inspired by the dice game Sagrada, where players use
coloured dice to create a stained glass window, these socks
feature a geometric colourwork pattern, with a cabled arch
detail at the top to mimic window arches.
How to choose yarn?
The yarn used here is Truly Hooked standard sock which is a smooth tightly spun yarn. A blend of merino and nylon, promoting softeness and robustness with good stitch definition. Any sock yarn is suitable for this pattern. Verity recommends that the yarn you choose contains nylon for strength and durability. Wool fibres are suggested for comfort and stretch. Good alternatives are West Yorkshire Spinners Signature 4ply or KnitPicks Felici.
Properties & style to focus on for yarn choices
- Smooth yarn with good stitch definition.
- Can be blocked.
- Solids, Semisolids, or very lightly tonally variegated.
It is easy to change up the colour work so that you are only using 3 colours overall, This would better allow fo lightly variegated yarns, against a solid background colour.
