Blue Fakeisle Socks

This was my last skein of Regia Brasil Color, aka ‘fakeisle’ yarn. I originally had 6 skeins of it. Now I’m thinking it might be fun to use the leftovers from those 6 skeins to make 1 or even 2 pairs more.

Pattern: Loosely based on Gentleman’s Plain Winter Sock by Nancy Bush, pattern in Knitting Vintage Socks
Yarn: Regia Brasil Color and Opal Unisolid 4 ply.
Needles: 2.5 mm circulars
Notes: The Plain Winter Sock pattern is my default pattern for this highly patterned Regia yarn. This is my 6th pair knit with this yarn/pattern combination. I use a round heel because I don’t like the way the Dutch heel feels. This time I continued the ribbing down the back of the leg too.

These are a women’s size 9.5. I used 357 yards of Regia Brasil and 72 yards of Opal Uni-solid. They were knit at 70 stitches around and if I remember correctly, 10 rows per inch.
