Flock socks coming this May

Flock socks coming this May

A new release for May: The Flock Socks 

If you've been following my social media channels recently, you'll see that I've sent the flock socks pattern off for editing and testing! 
The flock socks are a fun way to make the most of texture with some simple stitch repeats. This sample is knit in a 100% hardy wool yarn but you could use a sock yarn with nylon for extra durability if you’d prefer. They are socks knit from the cuff down with a square, integrated heel, some short row shaping and a grafted toe.

If you want to be the first to know when this pattern launches, you can sign up to my newsletter either at the bottom of this page or the home page! 
The socks feature a square (Dutch heel) that is split into 3 after some increases and decreased back down to create a sturdy, rectangular shape under the heel.
You can see a quick video of how the heel is made here:
