Soft Pretzels Sock KAL

Sort by:

Join us for the Soft Pretzels Sock KAL


Now Through October 11th!

Join us to make these fun socks, and you might even win a prize! 

Description:  This toe-up design features a fun four-round stitch pattern reminiscent of the traditional pretzel twist!  And since this pair is knit with our merino yarn - these are definitely Soft Pretzels.  The fancy flap-style heel is integrated into a pair of tricked out gussets, and stitch counts are increased through the heel creation for an optimized fit.  Instructions for this design are provided in text and charts.

No yarn purchase is required to participate in the KAL, but kits are available for $25 in your choice of 33 colors and three yarn bases by scrolling below. Or, if you prefer to visit your stash, you can download the pattern to your Ravelry library.



Kits Include:

  1. One 100g skein of Sock-aholic II, Sock-aholic® Old No.8, or Sock-aholic Confootie yarn in your choice of 33 colors.  (Please note there is an additional $2 charge for Sock-aholic Confootie.)
  2. A fun pretzel progress marker to commemorate your KAL participation  :-)
  3. The Soft Pretzels sock pattern by Wendy Gaal in pdf, with the option for a Ravelry library copy and/or a hard copy.
