We propose that you celebrate Valentine’s Day by sharing your love of knitting with your partner, your family, your friends or whoever you want. Therefore, this 14th of February we’re suggesting to knit some soft, cosy Love Socks using Katia Bombon. On the one hand, you’ll surprise with a simple fun-loving message. As you’ll easily see from the word LOVE that can be read when you put your feet together. And on the other hand, it’s a nice romantic gesture to look after the soft skin of your feet. Above all, no cold feet this Valentine’s Day! Caress the furry texture of Katia Bombon and feel the pleasantly warm sensation… like love. 😉
Furthermore, on this occasion we’re encouraging you to knit in the round using circular needles, or if you prefer, a set of double-pointed needles. If you decide to use the circular needles, you’ll be working using the Magic Loop. You still don’t know this technique? Well don’t worry, because we’re going to give you a detailed explanation in the pattern instructions. Without doubt, this pair of Love Socks is a very special gift, and furthermore, one that you’re going to enjoy knitting.
Are you ready to knit your 2 pairs of Love Socks? In the first place, download the knitting pattern and follow the instructions to knit your socks with a lot of love. Choose the required size: small = 2-3 (35-36), medium = 4-6 (37-39) or large = 6 ½ – 7 ½ (40-42). Start knitting the socks at the upper ribbing working down to the toe. The letters LOVE are added afterwards using intarsia. Alternate the two colours following the graph that you will find in the pattern. Furthermore, you only need 2 balls of Bombon in white to knit 4 socks and one ball on red to create the word Love. Of course, you can always personalise the colour combination. Discover the 28 pastel tones of Bombon and fall in love all over again from head to foot.
