Flectere has been released into the world...
The Latin word flectere, meaning “to bend” or “to curve,” and its form flexus give us the roots flect and flex. Something flexible can be bent without breaking.
I love the combination of slipped stitches with variegated yarn. It’s a combination I never tire of or find boring to knit. This pattern was inspired by this gorgeous variegated yarn by Malabrigo Yarn (the colourway is Acro Iris). The short colour repeats combined with the curve and bend of the stitch pattern manage to complement each other without competing with each other, which is a good outcome not only for hand knit socks, but for life in general.
This sock starts with a star toe and the stitch pattern on the top of the foot. Then, after a short row heel, the stitch pattern continues on the front and back of the sock. When knitting the sample socks, I reversed the order of the charts for the second sock so that the pattern would be the opposite of the first sock, though this modification is not instructed in the pattern.
Flectere includes instructions for 4 circumferences and the foot length is customizable. You can download Flectere with a 20% discount until Monday June 18th, 2018 (no coupon code required, the discount will automagically be applired at checkout)!
