Nightingale pattern by Vintage Purls
Nightingale is a toe-up, stranded colour work sock that uses just two yarns; one variegated and one almost solid. Pick two colours that contrast well with each other for maximum effect.
Wheat is a top-down sweater with the yoke shaped as the compound raglan, which creates a natural line running along the shoulder - something between the classic raglan and set-in sleeve.
Ranunculus is a top-down round yoke pullover with lace and textured stitches. The round yoke has ample depth and finished pullover has cropped length so that you can lay it over dresses or high-waisted skirts and pants. If crops aren’t your style, please adjust body to your favorite length.
