How to knit: Wale Stitch

This tutorial video covers how to work the Wale Stitch used in the Hazelfern Sock pattern by Jared Flood. Worked in worsted-spun Peerie, the Hazelfern Socks are a symphony of cables, lace, and wale stitches and a luxurious treat to wear when lounging at home or taking an afternoon stroll. Visit our Resources page at to see more of our tutorial videos.

Working the Wale Stitch works with either a double-wrapped knit (as shown in the video above) or a single-wrapped knit, when working into the stitch from three rows below. A double-wrapped version will create a slightly fuller expression of the stitch.
