I finally got round to publishing this sock pattern. I designed them whilst on holiday in Greece way back in 2014! They are named after our favourite taverna - Kali Kardia - which means 'good heart'. It's an easy to memorise textured stitch pattern, designed to show off your favourite solid or semi-solid fingering weight yarn. Thanks to one of my test knitters misreading the original pattern, it comes with two pattern options - either ribbed or chequerboard. Why not make both?! I have two pairs and Mr JK currently has one (and before you ask, Flo doesn't have any!!) The pink and blue versions are both knit using the chequerboard pattern whilst the grey pair are knit in the ribbed pattern. This pattern has lots of negative ease, so it's perfect for gifting!
You can download the pattern for free from here. Please let me know if you make a pair, I'd love to see them! I shall leave you with a few images of the Greek village where Kali Kardia first came into being. Enjoy! xxx
