Biscotte’s Self-Striping Yarn Lets You Knit Magic Into Every Sock!
You can buy Biscotte hand-dyed yarns online or you can find it in shops all over the world, including their own knitting shop Les Laines Biscotte located in Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville on the south shore of Montreal. A place I will visit one day!
Currently I’m working on Biscotte’s super-cute Cupcake Shrug with their lovely hand-dyed, self-striping, speckled, and semi-solid yarns. I love it because it’s a very versatile piece that you can wear as a scarf or a shrug! I’ll be sharing lots of updates as I go, look for them soon! But today I’m writing about something else … how to make magic with Biscotte’s self-striping yarn!
I saw this free sock pattern designed by Louise Robert (an owner of Biscotte Yarns) and I knew I had to share! She is a fan of the storyteller Fred Pellerin and his crazy fairy-tales about the small village where he grew up, a magical village called Saint-Élie-de-Caxton. Knit with Biscotte self-striping yarn, you don’t have to worry about color changes for the roads! The small houses are embroidered onto the socks using the duplicate stitch technique. And the best part, this pattern can be worked with a set of 5 double-pointed needles or on circular needles. I know many people who like to knit socks on circulars, so here you go! Make some magic, knit a pair of Saint-Élie-de-Caxton socks!
