The sock pattern is inspired by the Swedish man’s garment, the Ullared, of the late 19th century. These Ullared socks are circularly knitted from the top to the toe and include the Two-color Long Tail Cast-on, tips on adding horizontal stripes in ribbing, the traditional dotted diamond motifs of the Ullared, and the “Auto” heel and Star toe shaping.
There are four sizes based on the circumference of the sock leg: Small-children (6.75″), Medium-medium women (8.25″), Large- large woman/small man (9.75″), Extra Large- large man (11.25″). The Small, Medium and Large kits contain the pattern and one skein each of the red and the black yarn. The Extra-Large kit contains the pattern and two skeins of the black and one skein of the red yarn.
The gauge, worked in 2-color stockinette stitch, is 8 stitches/ inch, 10 rounds/ inch. Suggested double-pointed needle size: US 0 and 1 (2.0 and 2.25mm).
The pattern includes techniques boxes, a schematic, a glossary, bibliography, and a chart.
