A Rose by Any Other Name Chromatic Gradient Matching Socks Set (medium), Greatest of Ease, ready to ship
This yarn is ready to ship from our studio to your favorite knitting chair.
Medium dyed-to-match gradient socks sets make perfect slow-striping socks. You choose to start from the center of the cake or the outside! If you start with the same color for each sock, you'll have maternal twins - every stitch of one sock matches the other exactly.
Medium socks - A medium socks set has 2 cakes that are approximately 150 yards each. This makes a crew sock for women's size 6-9. If you want larger socks or just longer cuffs, look for a "large socks set". We recommend working toe-up socks whenever possible so you never stop knitting before your gradient finishes with a flourish.
This gradient is part of our Chromatics Collection - a sweet array of single-color gradients moving from light to dark. The Chromatics feature a light version of each color (for instance, pale pink to red in Sweet Babboo) paired with a dark version (the deep red to near-black of Pirate Island). Mix and match the light colors for a carefree rainbow effect, use the darker spectrum colors for a sophisticated, moody palette or use one of each for an uninterrupted 2-cake gradient color flow.
*A Rose By Any Other Name Chromatic Gradient* reminds us of dewy English roses and Midwestern spring lilacs. A smooth chromatic gradient that moves through six shades of pale lilac to a perfect deep rose would be a great color for when you’re meeting Mr. Darcy for tea.
