NEW PROJECT Ayla Chunky Cabled Socks


Happy New Year! I hope you had (or are still having) a great holiday. This project was supposed to be for the holidays, but you know how things are … life. I thought the Ayla socks would make great wearing around the house or slipper socks, akin to reading socks, but made from something lovely, natural, and by YOU!

We used the luscious and seriously cozy Illimani Llama II, and our socks definitely turned out delicious! Camelid fibres like Llama and Alpaca tend to stretch once they are worn, so you may want to go down a needle size if you use this type of fibre. Wool and the wool blend the pattern is designed in (Berroco Vintage Chunky) tend to be springy and keep their shape much better. If machine washability is important for you, go with the Malabrigo Mecha or Berroco Vintage Chunky, both are superwash yarns and a no-brainer.

We used Illimani Llama II (2 skeins), but you can use a few other options:
