Sock-a-thon | Certus Socks KAL with SharaMade
If you're looking to up your knitting game, why not join our Sock-a-thon KAL with Shara, from @shara_made? You'll learn all about mosaic knitting in the round. The pattern is easy to memorise, and your work is easy to read, so it’s a relaxing knit.
The Certus Socks are worked from the cuff down, with the mosaic pattern continuing all the way down the foot, including the sole, with an interesting gusset detail, along with a traditional heel flap and turn.
You have two ways to join the Sock-a-thon Certus Socks KAL with SharaMade!

When you sign up for the Sockathon KAL, you will receive a Zoom invitation to join Shara's Kick off session at 2.30 pm on Saturday, October 7th. Shara will introduce the Certus Socks design, demonstrate the mosaic pattern, and answer any questions you might have. A recording of the session will be sent via email so that you can review it during the month of October.
Videos demonstrating the tricky parts of the Certus Socks!
Shara will be releasing two video recordings to help you complete the sock on time.
1. Saturday 14th October : video demonstration of the heal turn and gusset
2. Saturday 21st October : video demonstration on how to finish the toe.
The Certus Socks pattern is a fun introduction to mosaic knitting. And because the pattern combines 2 different coloured sock yarns, it’s a good way to use leftover sock yarn as well! Shara has also chosen four different Yarn Packs (using Inca Spun Heritage and Plassard Tradi Merino) to give you a spark of creativity if you need some yarn ideas. When you purchase a Yarn Pack, you'll get a copy of the Certus Socks pattern and you'll automatically be signed up for the KAL.
