Harika Cast On

Harika (ha-ree-ka) is the Turkish word for wonderful, marvellous, extraordinary and those are perfect adjectives to describe Stephanie van der Linden’s sock pattern called Harika.  These socks will be extra-ordinary when they are finished!

The Latvian Twist cuff  with corrugated ribbing looks awfully complicated but it isn’t nearly as difficult as it looks.

Stranded knitting always draws me in and captivates me with the changing colors.  The background is knit with a solid color while the various other colors are in a multi-color striped yarn.  Faux Fair Isle.

Harika.  I love saying that word.  I love this pattern.

  1. What a beautiful sock! I just got a book with instructions to make the twisted cuff. Now that I’ve seen in – I might have to try it! 🙂
