There are so many possible variations of Cashmere Stitch, it was hard to limit it to just five.
This mini-sock takes its color scheme from the multi-colored Watercolours in block 4. This shade is called Raspberry Sherbet (I don’t see it, but I love the color). The two shades in it I really like were the reddish clay and the honey colors. They were the jumping-off point for the other threads used.
Remember to trace and number the outline, above click for full size, on your canvas.
Block 1 is stitched in a SuZy Murphy stitch, Building Blocks. This pattern uses two sizes of Cashmere. The larger one horizontal and the smaller one vertical. I stitched it in Thread Gatherer’s Flax n’Colors (no longer made) in a shade called Rust & Roses.
Block 2 is stitched in Zig-zag Cashmere, below, using Gumnuts Blossoms wool. You may have seen this pattern often; it’s common for brick pathways.
Block 3 is stitched in a Cashmere pattern called 2-way Cashmere Stripe, below. As in block 1, the stitches are two slightly different sizes and run in different directions. But here the two types of stitches alternate lines, not stitches. I used an unidentified oversdyed perle #5 for this, but I think it’s Threadworx.
Block 4 is done in Giant Diagonal Cashmere, below, using one strand of Watercolours.
Block 5 is done in a variation called Holding Hands Cashmere, below, using Mocha Rose Watercolours.
If you like the Learn-a-Stitch mini-socks, I have a printed book with them all, available here.
