Calling all sock knitters – March is Sockalicious with a massive 25% off DROPS sock yarns until 31st March.
DROPS Fabel is a 4-stranded yarn that is treated to be machine washable. It is available in 3 different types of shades: uni colour, a selection of solid colours; print, where each shade is made of various colours that repeat regularly and long print, similar to print colours but with longer repetitions of each colour. DROPS Delight is a single-stranded yarn that is treated to be machine washable. Besides having a nice handspun texture with small thickness variations, the “magic print” technique used on the colouring of DROPS Delight provides unique patterns and smooth colour transitions, meaning also that within one dye lot, lighter or darker varieties might appear.
Both yarns contain 25% polyamide so are perfect for socks. You can find a free basic sock pattern here and there are lots of others to choose from on the Drops website which can all be downloaded for free. My current favourites are Dancing Zoe – ankle socks with a stripe and wave pattern and Summer Grazing – fair isle socks with a sheep theme
Of course, just because these yarns are labelled as socks yarns, it doesn’t mean that you have to limit yourself to socks. Both yarns also make fabulous shawls, cardigans and baby clothes. Whilst the Sockalicious promotion lasts you can knit this stunning shawl for only £8.00 (plus p & p).
You can download the Butterfly Dream shawl pattern here.
