As Seen in Let's Knit Magazine (December 2011) and Knit Today magazine (February 2012)
This lovely mini sock blocker has been created by Sunflower Swifts by using fine ash wood, smoothed and finished to create a mini key ring. Literally Yarn have designed a mini ribbed sock pattern to fit the sock blocker - making a lovely gift for all knitters. The sock pattern can also be used to create mini sock/boot decorations which can be stuffed and used to adorn any Christmas tree - or filled with chocolate coins as a gift. This product is available exclusively at The Yarn Cafe.
The mini sock is created in the round on 2.5mm double pointed needles.
The pattern has been designed with a mini ball of Opal sock yarn in mind which can also be purchased as part of a pack - costing £5.00 in all (or £3.50 without the yarn).

I can't wait to knit several little socks. I will be so much fun. Maybe I need to buy the mitt as well.

I have over a period of time bought 7 of these delightful mini sock blocker keyrings as gifts for our little group of sock knitters and everyone was delighted with them and immediately set about knitting them and now have them dangling on their project bags. I usually knit socks for gifts at Xmas and add a little knitted sock on a split ring with the care instructions, always raises a smile :-) ) from the recipient.

Makes lovely gift, never fails to please the recipients that I have given these cute, little, sock blockers to.
Well finished, easy to understand pattern.
Good communication, thank you Yarn Café.
I'll be back!

The blockers are very well finished and presented very attractively. I cannot wait to get started! Customer service was excellent. Will surely be back.

Excellent little kits and if they were a tad cheaper I would buy lots to give as presents. And even raise monies for various charities like a sort of a raffle prize. Customer service was very good I will be coming back for more this year.

Lovely, small gift idea and perfect for using up tiny scraps of yarn. Customer service was also excellent.

Bought these to make mini socks as presents for my housemates before we all move out of our student house. The service from the yarn cafe was brilliant - super quick delivery, even with the double bank holiday - and arrived well packaged and with the extra surprise of some sweets in the envelope!
The mini sock blockers themselves are great - the pattern fits them perfectly, and I'm really pleased with the finished result. Hoping my housemates like them too!

I just love these little treasures, great for gifts or a conversation starter if it's on your keys!
