27 Knots is a DK weight sock suitable for boots! The name came from the cable pattern. It looks like it might be blowing I came up with 27 knots! My husband is a Tugboat Captain so we measure wind in "knots" or nautical miles per hour. 27 knots is Gale Force, strong enough to blow away lots of stuff, including a cable. So there's a complicated story for an odd name. The pattern includes instructions for altering the length of the sock so that you can customize the fit! Approximately 264 yards of a DK weight yarn.

Hi, my name is Moira Engel or "The Backloop Designs". I live on the West Coast of Canada and am married to a Tugboat Captain. So warm woolies for wet weather are essential! I don't try to be a little outside of the box but that seems to be where I always end up!
