Sydämeni laulu (Song of My Heart) socks were originally designed for a sock design contest that was launched to celebrate the 100 years of independency in Finland in 2017. The stranded patterns feature Finnish nature and four seasons. Sydämeni laulu sock design reached the shared position 3-10 in the competition.
These adorable socks are cast on at the cuff and include a ‘clean’ stripe plus a turning round in the ribbing. For the traditional sock monkey look, 3 colours of Briggs & Little ‘Tuffy” are required, but there will be lots of red mix and ecru left over! (For the main colour, Granite, I used about 65% of the skein for my ladies’ small socks.)
