1 Mini skein of Simply Stella Fingering 80% Superwash Merino 20% Nylon 20g/80yds
After A LOT of research, I have learned from some very talented sock knitters that non-superwash wool is amazing for socks but you still want a little more stability through the heel and toe. That's why I am mixing bases, the 20% Nylon in each mini skein will add that extra stability to the areas of the sock that need it the most!

This is NOT for a finished pair of socks.
My debut sock pattern! The Bunchberry Socks were created with the longing to knit colourwork without having to hold multiple strands of yarn. The texture is created with purl stitches and becomes a mindless knit to work on.
This pattern is beginner friendly (I am a beginner sock knitter myself!) If you can knit and purl, you can knit these.
There are two different heels to choose from. A double stitch (short rows) heel or a heel flap and gusset.
I personally love more rustic yarn, they keep my feet warm but without any moisture. If you are concerned about the integrity of the yarn in your high traffic areas (heels and toes) you can add a strand of mohair.
My first pair was knit with Rustic Stella highland fingering and a contrast colour for cuffs, heels, and toes. My second pair is knit with one solid colour and added mohair for cuffs, heels, and toes.
