Opus 1100

Opus 1100


Narrow-striped, mid-calf sock with a chevron stitch panel at the front. This sock was designed to exploit the possibilites of sock-blank dyeing, and to manipulate yarn which is space-dyed with narrow stripes. There are two separate patterns for knitting cuff-down and toe-up, and both patterns include options to knit the sock with a small, medium or large number of sts per row. You can further adjust the width of the sock by using one of two needle sizes. That gives a total of 2 styles, 2 sock-knitting methods and 5 width-adjustments. Foot length is infinitely adjustable.

SizesWomen’s small, medium and large widths are changed by adjusting needle size and by choice of 3 row-sizes (different numbers of sts). Foot length is adjustable by knitting more or fewer rows.



  • Either: 100g or 460yd/420m of 4ply or light fingering sock yarn, space dyed for narrow striping.
  • Or: 100g or 460yd/420m of 4ply or light fingering sock yarn, undyed for sock-blank dyeing.

Needles: 4 dpns for cuff-down or toe-up version. An experienced knitter could substitute a pair of circulars for either version.
