There are thousands of patterns out there, so which to knit? Here are some of our favorites to knit for the kids in Akkol. Remember, all items must be at least 75% wool or other animal fiber to hold in body heat.
Wisconsin Winter Socks - This is a commercial pattern booklet from Cottage Creations that has three patterns: long socks with calf shaping, a double thick hat and a double thick scarf. The socks knit up quickly on size 8 DPNs. Buy the pattern from us or your local yarn shop.
Joan’s Socks - Pattern calls for Wool-Ease which is mostly acrylic. We recommend 100% wool instead for maximum warmth. You will need to use two strands of worsted weight or a strand of worsted with sport or fingering weight wool.
