Cast Off – February Sockdown

A few of you  have reminded me that I never posted about my completed Kaffe Fasset sock for last month’s Sockdown. 


We were challenged to try a new heel.  I choose the Eye of Partridge heel and then ended up making my own modifications so the brilliant Kaffe Fasset colors would ‘pop’ more.  BTW, I love, love, love this Regia Kaffe Fasset line!  I want to collect all of the dyelots.  I knit this pair of socks very quickly because I couldn’t wait to see the next color unfold.

Popping Eye of Partridge Heel  (even # sts)

Row 1: Sl 1 purlwise, *k 1, sl 1 knitwise,* repeat from * to * end.
Row 2: Sl 1 purlwise, p to last stitch, k 1.
Row 3: Sl 1 purlwise, sl 1 knitwise, *k 1, sl 1 knitwise,* repeat from * to * last 2 sts, k to end.
Row 4: Repeat Row 2
Repeat these rows till heel flap is about 2 1/2 in or desired length.

This is definitely my new favorite heel flap!  I really like how it looks and will try to incorporate it into my upcoming socks.

  1. Very nice socks! I like the Eye of Partridge heel too, especially with a 3-stitch garter border. Great job!

  2. I’ve got so much Opal sock yarn I resisted the Regia Kaffe stuff when it appeared in my LYS….now I’m really regretting it LOL!!!!

    These socks are gorgeous!

  3. I really like that colorway! The eye of the partridge heel is one of my favorite heels as well. It’s attractive, and just feels sturdier than other heel flaps.

  4. The socks look great! What fun colors and so bright. The heel mods. fit it perfectly.

    Happy Easter

  5. I like the colors in that sock yarn so much. Thanks for the instructions for the eye of partridge heel – I’ve been wanting to try it.

  6. The colors are gorgeous & I love the heel. Your change in the heel pattern is great & from now I will knit mine heel your way. Thanks & Happy Easter.

  7. Oh I really like that colorway. I haven’t seen that line in person yet — and I’m not sure my wallet wants me to ever see it.

  8. Nice socks! I, too, love the Eye of Partridge heel. I really should use it more often, because it always looks so nice.

  9. Gorgeous socks, and would it surprise you to learn that I had the exact same reaction after knitting my first pair of Regia KF socks? I knew I had to knit them all — well, at least the Landscape (striped) ones.
