Knit with the saints or fry with the sinners, your feet will look great either way. Inspired by the fiery preacher in the British modern classic novel, Cold Comfort Farm, by Stella Gibbons, Brother Amos’ socks feature a lace stitch pattern reminiscent of the flickering flames of hell where, according to Brother Amos, we’re all doomed to “fritter and fry” for eternity. If a solid fabric is more to your fancy, a less lacy sock can be worked by substituting M1s for YOs on the stitch pattern.
Brother Amos socks are knit from the toe up, in the round on two circular needles. Calf shaping is achieved by changing needle sizes. Socks are finished with ribbing and a super stretchy bind off.
