Kiwi As Summer Socks knitting pattern PDF



Welcome to the Land of the Long White Cloud, Aotearoa, New Zealand, where Flip-Flops are called ‚jandals‘ (Japanese sandals! It makes sense, right?) and are worn year-round.

These socks feel like summer. Fun split toes and a cute wave pattern make them an ideal project for your summer knitting and a quirky addition to your standard socks drawer.

The socks are worked top down in the round and are described with a boomerang heel using German short rows, although you can swap the heel for any heel that you like.

Techniques used are:

  • Stranded knitting – Fair Isle – Ladderback Jacquard
  • knitting in the round
  • simple decreases
  • reading charts
  • Grafting (alt. 3 needle bind-off) for closing the toes.

A step-by-step photo tutorial for the ladderback jacquard technique can be found here.

What you need:

  • Approx. 100g of fingering yarn in the main colour and 20g of contrasting colour of the same yarn. I used Yarn Therapy Trust High Twist Merino (365m/100g) in the colour ways Byzantine and Toffee Crisp for my socks.
  • 5 double pointed needles not larger than 3mm (I use 2,5mm needles and go up a size for the Fair Isle parts).
  • 2 stitch markers

A massive thank you to my wonderful test knitters and proof readers Binle, Meise , Owl-knitting, sylie and Suzieqtee.

Please tag your finished items on Instagram @MumpitzDesign so I can see them <3

This pattern includes two PDF files for the English version and the German version.
