I’m pleased to introduce Kanoko Socks – inspired by the dots on the back of a fawn and an antique indigo kimono I wore for years. Kanoko means baby deer in Japanese and is aslo a shibori tie-dye technique.


You’ll find Kanoko Socks in the spring issue of Carrie Bostick Hogue’s magazine Making, available for pre-order now! Find out all about it here!


I kept it local using Amy King’s (aka Spunky Eclectic) Skinny Sock yarn. I love the subtle variation in the deep rich evening sky blue – called Deep Night. Hi Ho Silver makes the perfect dots. You’ll need 270 yards (247 meters) of the Main Color and 45 yards (42 meters) of Contrast Color in fingering weight yarn.


Simple colorwork and oh so fun to knit!
