What could you knit with sock yarn?

This week we would like to show you what is in store for our sock knitters and 4ply enthusiasts.

 Schoppel Zauberball 4ply 100g (colour #1564) with knitted sample

The Schoppel wool range has a fantastic array of self patterning yarns and wonderful colour blends like the Zauberball(pictured above).

Munchkin Hats – Made from Morris Empire  4ply and Schoppel Crazy Zauberball

These cute little Munchkin Hats are from our Morris and Sons pattern collection. 1 ball of Schoppel Crazy Zauberball (colour # 2092) and 1 ball of Morris & Sons Empire (Colour:Seascape Twist, #443) were used to make both hats! And many more could be made with your left over yarn!

The socks above have been knitted with the same ball of wool but started from different ends . A good thing to keep in mind when knitting with these types of variegated, self-patterning wools; pattern changes can be drastic!

Sock yarn one-skein Wonders has a vast selection of patterns, 101 to be exact! This book includes patterns from socks, garments for little ones to a turtle neck sweater for your dog!
