It all began with a yarn. The always wonderful Hedgehog Fibre Sock bought at Lil Weasel during the yarn & craft show CSF 2015. I knew in an instant what this beautiful yellow yarn will one day become a banana sock. Sometimes you have to work to find the right theme or inspiration for a pattern. Some others inspiration fall upon you without any kind of warning like it happened with Radiative.
Knitted from the toe up, the Radiative sock features a cable banana leaf pattern on a reverse stockinette background which takes its roots in the toes and dissolve into the ribbing.
On the back of the leg you’ll find a totally different pattern. A liana swirls from the flap up to the ribbing with a cable (mirrored on each sock) in between the two panels.
