The Desmondus Socks

The Wilhelmina Shawlette was not Chrissy Gardiner's, of Gardiner Yarn Works, first foray into creating with Serendipitous Ewe's Fate Fingering yarn. A while back she created these unisex socks, Desmondus.

Named after the little grey vampire bat, the Desmondus Socks to be knit in Serendipitous Ewe's Fate Fingering sock yarn in the vampire inspired colorway Silver Shadows, a color in a series dyed exclusively for my website. Use one skein for a pair of women's socks and two skeins for men's. An unique cable pattern and lace insert are featured on these cuff down "His-and-Hers" socks for the night owl in your life.

The cable and lace patterns are both charted and written plus Chrissy includes instructions for two techniques for turning the heel and for the Kitchener Stitch.
