Aros means estuary and refers to the place where the Fyrisån river meets Lake Mälaren.

Consider this when choosing your size
The sock is designed to be knitted in a wool blend and wool stretches when you use it, then comes back together when you wash/rinse the socks. These socks are meant to be worn directly on the foot in regular walking shoes, so the sock needs to be knitted a little narrower and a little shorter than the foot it is meant to fit.

In this pattern, size is indicated by the circumference of the sock, which is usually 1-4 cm narrower than the foot is around the bottom of the arch (towards the toe). These socks have a braided pattern over the foot, so it narrows the sock a bit, but the sock should still have at least 1 cm less circumference than the foot.

The length of the sock is entirely determined when you work the part of the sock described in the pattern as the “foot”. foot. It is important to keep in mind that the socks will stretch a little when they are used and therefore the socks are knitted a little shorter than the foot on which they will fit. In the pattern, Anna has recommended that you knit the socks 1-2 cm shorter than the foot on which they will fit.
