 I’m back with one more yarn spoiler for you. …here’s what you’ll need for the final pattern

For this last pattern, I used two contrasting skeins of sock yarn.

Pretty much any sock weight or fingering yarn would be perfect. For the sample, I chose the lovely Luxe High Twist Sock from NNK Yarns, a brilliant indie dyer out of Brisbane, Australia.

I’m a super fan of the subtle yet saturated colours that they produce. And the high twist of this yarn means that you get a fabric with fabulous stitch definition, which is a nice bonus.

For some extra fun, this design also used optional beads to add some sparkle and weight!

The details…
