Opal Yarns

Get knitting with... Opal Yarns

Kirstie McLeod's sparkly socks are knitted in Opal's self-patterning yarn, so you can focus on the stitches.

30th January 2016

These pretty socks are knitted in Opal's Happy yarn, a mix of 71% superwash wool, 26% polyamide, and 3% polyester. 

We used the Sweet & Spicy 2 shade - bright colours with a hint of sparkle.

We like the mismatched look, but if you want to knit two identical socks it's easy – just start both socks at the beginning of a specific colour change.

To find your stockist of Opal Yarns visit the Viridian website or click below for a selection of UK retailers. And if you missed issue 142 with Kirstie's pattern, you can order a back issue here.
