The Designers

The Patterns

Feet Retreat (Retail $4.00)

Here are the pattern details from Raverly:

These thermal socks are perfect for keeping warm and are great worn with boots. Each sock is one piece worked in the round, cuff down.

Sizing is for calf and foot circumference, length of foot is completely customizable. Gauge can be tightened or loosened by using a smaller or larger hook size to further customize size. (hint: if you have a high instep use a larger hook through gusset!)

Crochet fabric is not as initially elastic as knit, so the first few times the socks are put on, they will feel tighter than they should. Never fear, the sock will stretch with wear and washing. If giving as a gift, blocking is recommended. Sock elastic can be run along with the sock yarn in cuff if so desired.

As a public service announcement: Beware of second sock syndrome, keep it from happening to you by working both socks concurrently!

Emita (Retail $4.00)

Here are the pattern details from Raverly:

Emita combines knit and purl stitches to create an elegant cowl with an optional mobius option. Emita is ideal for showing off the beauty of highly variegated and/or hand dyed yarns.

About Yarnbox

Yarnbox was built out of a passion for discovering wonderful new fibers and yarns and sharing that joy with others. There are simply too many great yarns for even the largest of stores to carry. The sad truth is that many high quality yarns are simply unknown to many knitters. Yarnbox allows you to experience fibers you may never have discovered while allowing small brands exposure on an international level.
