Regia Wool & The Gang Kinda Magic Socks

People who wear snazzy socks have more fun. Regia Design Line by Wool and the Gang (also known as Regia Kinda Magic Sock) yarn comes in a kit and knits up in a pattern all by itself; as you whiz through your knit the leopard print pattern will start to show its spots, and then before you know it, TA-DAH – one pair of leopard print socks, as if by magic! The kit comes with full instructions and you can follow an instructional video too (see below). Note: it’s important to get the correct tension in this yarn to make the patterning work, so swatch before you start.

Regia LOVE a good sock. Based in Germany, they have over 65 years’ experience in the bag of making the best-of-the-best sock yarn. They come with a 10-year quality assurance too – that’s how bloomin’ good they are.

FREEBIE Pixel Stitch Socks

Pixel Stitch Socks

Worked from the toe up, these pretty socks would make an excellent spring project for the intermediate knitter. They’d look great with the subtle variations of the semi-solid, hand-dyed colour of Malabrigo Alegria. If you aren’t feeling that fancy, go for Cascade Heritage. You won’t go wrong with either, both yarns are made with super-soft merino wool that is blended with nylon to help them wear well.

Yarn Options

Malabrigo Alegria: 1 skein in each of 2 colours

Cascade Heritage: 1 skein in each of 2 colours

Materials

  • FREE Pattern
  • 2.75mm/US2 double pointed needles (or size to obtain gauge)
