About the Kits

Each of them contains a pattern booklet and enough of Jennifer’s Flock Sock yarn to make a pair of socks in Women’s Medium. Please let us know if you need a larger size; I’m working on new editions of the pattern booklets which will include such sizing instructions, and we can arrange to supply larger skeins of yarn as needed.

The copiously illustrated booklets are 5.5″ x 8.5″, put together with book rings so you can use them like flip charts. Pattern stitches are written out step by step but are also charted; you’ll find the charts and a glossary of abbreviations on cards at the back of the book, so they can be removed and used separately if you like – placed on a chartkeeper, etc.

Jennifer’s Flock Sock is a 4/14 (4-ply, 14 ply-meters/gram, so 3.5 meters/gram overall) superwash merino/nylon blend; suggested gauge 8 sts x 12 rows = 1″ on US #1 needles. It is hand-dyed by Jennifer VanCalCar of VanCalCar Acres, who also handles inventory and sales. Here are some pictures of dyeing and drying in progress.

Thalassa – the colorway that inspired the Poseidon sock.

Crimson Rioja – the colorway for the Kitri sock.

The Kitri kit also includes a small skein of Zephyr laceweight (50% merino/50% tussah silk) in Ebony, and a package of beads, for the lace overlay.
