This Toe-Up Socks with Afterthought Heel Pattern is a Loop favourite. We’ve offered it, as a free pattern, for the last five years and we can see that at least 423 of you have listed your projects on Ravelry! We thought it was time to refresh the pattern and make a new version in one of our favourite sock yarns, Madelintosh Twist Light.
One of the final dyers who have contributed to our anniversary book is Koigu. Their one-of-a-kind colour ways are hand painted, capturing a little bit of magic and creativity in each speckle of dye. Now we have not one, but two custom shades to inspire new projects and colour combinations. Make sure to read to the end of the blog to find out about our giveaway – two readers can win two skeins of our Koigu Anniversary colours! (This competition is now closed – but we’ll certainly have more in the future)
Koigu means colour and lots of it! A finely spun pure merino yarn that has been used at Loop to create some of our favourite projects – we can’t get enough of their speckled and striped skeins! Especially their new shades for summer 2014…
