Reynard Socks

Reynard 2

Raynard with its ornate cuff, and simple leg and foot, is perfect for showing off beautiful gradient yarns like KnitCircus's Thrilling. Thrilling comes divided into two cakes, allowing the knitter to easily achieve a matched pair.  I broke down and ordered two more colors this morning. I am weak in the presence of beautiful yarn.

Raynard starts with a delicate picot cast on, followed by an intricate cuff pattern of twisted stitches. To me the cuff looks like little upside down fox faces. I like the way they look up at me when I'm wearing the socks.

The pattern is written for two sizes. Choose your size based on your foot and ankle circumference. The length of the foot is customizable for a perfect fit.

Another gorgeous design, Kirsten! What a great way to use some funkier yarns.
