Lucida Sock Pattern
Discover Lauren Rad's beautiful pattern offered in September 2021 for the mystery sock club and now offered for all!!! ♥
Lucida refers to the brightest star in any given constellation. During winter-time, the stars feel extra bright in the crisp, cold, night air, so that almost every star feels like it could be a lucida.
The eyelets dan-cing up and down the front and back of these socks are meant to mimic a night sky dusted with twinkling stars.
In addition to the knitting pattern, you need the following materials to knit Lucida socks:
- Louise Robert Yarns Collection – Super Sock [75% Merino SW and 25% Nylon, 400 m / 437 yds, 100 g / 3.5 oz] shown in color Exclusive color - we suggest Brooke (or 274-348 m / 300-380 yds of another fingering weight yarn).
- Circular or DPN’s needles of 2.5 mm (US 1.5).
- One stitch marker for beginning of round; optional additional markers between pattern repeats
- Cable needle.
- Tapestry needle for weaving in ends
SIZES: S, M, L
Finished sock dimensions: 18 cm; 7”, 20 cm; 8”, 23 cm; 9” circumference. (Note: most people like their socks snug, so choose a finished sock size that is slightly smaller than your actual foot)
GAUGE : 10 cm; 4” square = 34 stitches x 41 rows in stockinette.
SKILL LEVEL: Intermediate
TECHNIQUES : cables, increases, decreases, knitting in the round.
NOTES: These socks are knit from the cuff down with a 1x1 twisted rib cuff. They feature a center panel of lace and cables that runs down the front and back of the sock. The heel is constructed with a classic heel flap and gusset for the snuggest and most customizable fit, and the socks end with a wedge toe.
