Belvedere

1810545988_cb9dcbff09

Worked from the top down, Belvedere is a richly textured pattern.
The twisted stitches add stretch and interest.  Unlike most of my patterns, the instructions for these socks are written for DPN's, since that was the preferred method for my swap pal, Peaknit.

I only made one of these, Peaknit completed the pair just in time for the big game.  Check them out on her blog.

Kim of The Woolen Rabbit fame, test knit Belvedere and will also be selling the pattern.  Hers are gorgeous in her beautiful Raspberry Lime Ricky yarn.

I have included two sizes, S/M (7.5-9.5" circumference at foot and ankle) and M/L (8.5-11.5" circumference at foot and ankle).   My daughter was the model in the photos and the sock shown is the S/M.  Her foot measures 8.5" at the ball of the foot and she wears a US size 9.5-10 shoe.  There is a lot of stretch in the pattern due to the twisted stitches, so the S/M even fits my wide  (9.25" at the ball, US size 8.5) foot.

Please note that due to the large repeat on this pattern, there was no way to increase the stitch count for the larger size without substantially changing the look of the pattern.  Therefor I increased the size by altering the gauge.  For this reason, Medium Weight Socks That Rock will work better for the M/L size.  The S/M was made with Lightweight STR.

As with all of my patterns, once Paypal notifies me of payment I will e-mail the PDF to you.

Absolutly gorgeous socks.

Hoo-ray! New socks, coming my way ;) What a lovely pattern!

The socks look fantastic. Sounds like your swap partner loved them too.

I haven't knitted Anna's Socks yet though, so Belvedere will have to wait for a bit!
