Malfors socks


Happiness is living in a place where you can find your corner of peace of mind, where all worries are erased. A place where your soul can find peace, far from the burdensome chores of the day.
The place that puts you at ease in a way that nothing else can. Maybe it’s in the most comfortable sofa, under the warmth of a blanket, watching your favorite show on TV for the umpteenth time. Or it’s in your favorite armchair, in front of the warming, crackling fire, while the cold wind blows in the distance outside the frosty window. As you sink deeper and deeper into the soft cushion, all you hear is the familiar incessant sound of your knitting needles feeding.
It’s a soothing sound as you knit stitch after stitch, row after row. Even more familiar is the steady sound of your own heart. The craft between your fingers keeps you busy while the hours pass as if they were seconds.
I hope you can find your own special place of peace of mind and I welcome you to share my favorite self-striping yarn pattern.

About the design
In the area where I live, the properties are called Malfors. Since it is often in
I find peace of mind in the quiet corner of my home, it is fitting to call them Malfors Socks.
These socks are worked from the toe up with a heel wedge and heel tab. For this design, it is particularly important to start the heel wedge in the right place, so I have included several sizing tips. I really recommend you to read the paragraphs on size selection and the importance of pricking the knitting strength.

X-Small (Small) Medium (Large) X-Large
The socks are designed to fit tightly on the foot and are 1-5 cm narrower than the foot they are designed to fit. This means that the socks are designed to fit feet with a circumference (see picture) of:
14.5-19.5 (16.5-20.5) 19-23 (21-25) 23.5-27.5 cm.
The length of the socks is adjustable. To fit well, they should ideally be 1-2 cm shorter than the length of the foot.

36 sts and 45 rows = 10×10 cm in stockinette stitch after blocking Normally I would recommend working a test patch to make sure your knitting tension is correct.
But when knitting socks, you can use your toe as a test patch, just be prepared to start from the beginning again if the knitting strength deviates from the pattern.

Knitting needles and accessories
4 stitch markers
1 special lap marker
Darning needle
Knitting needles to knit with a small circumference, in one size to achieve knitting strength. For example circular knitting needles of at least 80 cm in length, double pointed needles, small 23 cm circular needle or CrazyTrios/FlexiFlops
When the specimen was knitted, knitting strength was achieved on needles 2.25 mm.
Keep in mind that I knit hard, so you may need to go down one or two sizes.

Sock yarn 75% yarn/25% nylon with a stretch length of about 400 m per 100 g.
Primer 120 (135) 160 (180) 200 meters
Pattern color 100 (115) 135 (150) 170 meters
As a base color, a self-striping or multi-colored yarn will look great, and
solid colored yarn as a pattern color.
