Prana is our life-force energy, our breath, our consciousness. It is used in yoga to support our mind-body connection.However, it can be hard to focus on your breath if your feet are cold!
Introducing the Prana Yoga Sock. I’m so proud of this pattern as it’s one of my first but also because it bloomed from a personal need. I often get literal cold feet in my yoga practice and couldn’t find a yoga sock pattern that I loved. So I made one!
These socks keep your feet warm but allow you to continue to connect with your mat for balance and stability through your toes and heels. Need more grip? The socks can slouch up into a leg warmer when more of the foot is needed or once your practice begins to warm you up.
This knitting pattern is suitable for beginner knitters. The sock is knit in the round with minimal shaping. Unlike a regular sock, there is no heel to turn or toe stitches to graft. The largest challenge in this pattern is binding off and casting on stitches mid row – which is easier than it looks.
Recommended yarn: Loops and Threads Joy DK (available at Michael’s). One ball of this yarn will make one pair of socks.
This pattern is written for 4 different sizes – Small (Women’s 4-6.5) Medium (Women’s 7-9.5; Men’s 6-8½) Large (Women’s 10-12.5; Men’s 9-11½) Extra Large (Men’s 12-14) – and can easily be made larger or smaller by adding or subtracting stitches.
The pattern is available now on Ravelry. Visit my shop to purchase your copy today.
