Knit a pair of Riku Socks for yourself or as a gift!

A cozy reading moment often includes a cup of something hot to drink and warm woolen socks, especially in winter.

In honor of the Rikhardinkatu Library's jubilee, a knit-along event is organized, where adult-sized fairisle socks inspired by the 140-year-old library will be knitted. 

Snippets of the instructions will be published on this page every four days starting on 24 Nov 2022 and the last part comes out on 19 Dec, so you'll have time to knit your socks for Christmas!

By sharing a photo of your own Riku Socks on Instagram with the tags @Rikunkirjasto #Rikusukat, you will  enter into the draw for a yarn gift card, which will be held on Rikhard and Riku's name day, February 7, 2023.
