Les Laines Biscotte is pleased to present the pattern for the mystery sock club of March 2021.
ÉTUDE - noun. a musical composition, usually instrumental, intended mainly for the practice of some point of technique.
This name seems to be appropriate for this design which combines both techniques: stranded colorwork 🎹 & cables 🎻.
A classic pattern to practice your skills and perfect your talent, whether musical or not ! ...and why not do it while listening to Chopin's Étude op. 10 no. 3.
In addition to the knitting pattern, you will need the following materials to knit the Étude socks:
• Louise Robert Design SUPER SOCK : 80 (100) g of main color, shown in Parchemin (A)
