Uptempo

Jo Torr Uptempo socks

Pattern: £3.75 (+ VAT)

A combination of cables and moss stitch panels decorate the sides of these toe-up socks, with the leg pattern continued in a slightly more simple form on the foot.

It was designed originally to showcase Three Irish Girls’ 4 mini-skein gradient sets, for which specific instructions are given, however in can be worked equally successfully in a single yarn.  Pattern instructions are both written and charted.

Sizes (measured around mid-foot)

  • Small – 7″ (17.75cm)
  • Medium – 8 ” (20.25cm)
  • Large – 9″ (22.75cm)

Originally available exclusively as part of the Three Irish Girls Sock It To Me club for December 2014, this pattern has been available for general purchase since 1st March 2015.

Yarn Requirements

100g of any 4ply (fingering) sock yarn should be suitable.  The sample was knit in Three Irish Girls Finley Fingering gradient set in Heartbreak Hotel colourway, which comprised 4 mini skeins each of 28g, 95 yards, 87m.  The socks could either be knit in a single yarn, a gradient set or a number of leftovers.
