Stranded sock knitting pattern PDF - Hexbin
Hexbin is a top-down, unisex sock pattern featuring stranded colorwork. It is a fun, geometric design that leaves a lot of room for experimentation with color and pattern. It is also a great stash-busting project for those self-striping, gradient or tonal colorways that can be difficult to do justice to.
There are 3 sizes available: Small (64 stitches), Medium (72 stitches) and Large (80 stitches).
The pattern is worked at a gauge of 8 stitches and 10 rows = 2.5 cm in stranded stockinette.
You’ll need fingering weight sock yarn in 2 contrasting colors: about 70 grams for main colour and 40 grams for contrast colour.
Other materials required are a set of knitting needles for working small circumferences in the round, needles to achieve gauge in stranded colourwork, at least 5 stitch markers, a cable needle if you use one for cabling, and a tapestry needle
Other materials required are a set of knitting needles for working small circumferences in the round, at least 8 stitch markers, and a darning needle.
This pattern contains 8 pages. Basic instructions are 3 pages and then there are 5 additional pages of charts (1 page per colour scheme + additional pages to colour your own charts).
This pattern was originally published in the STEM issue of Knotions in March 2020
