Lusekofte Socks
by Beth-Brown Reinsel

Inspired by the 19th century Norwegian Lusekofte, the traditional geometric patterning and lus (lice) motifs make this sock fun to knit. The stockinette stitch heel flap is knitted with a Norwegian Star pattern, and has a Band Heel, which requires no instep gusset, and a Wide Toe. Intermediate.  The gauge is 8 stitches/inch in 2 color stockinette stitch for three sizes. Notes are given for another three sizes, in between, knitted at 7 stitches/inch. Guernsey or firm sport weight yarn recommended. In traditional black and cream or your choice of colors.

Featured Techniques:
Double Cast-on, Knitting with a color in each hand, The Band Heel, The Wide Toe, Kitchener Stitch.

Beth Brown Reinsel is an expert on Scandanavian and other traditional knitting techniques.  All of her patterns include not only clear instructions but also charts, schematics, glossary and bibliography.  Every pattern also contains mini technique lessons.
