It's time to wind all of your sock yarn into pretty little yarn cakes. Socktoberfest is one week away!
After a bit of gentle nudging from the kind folks who visit the Through the Loops group on Ravelry, I've decided to do another Mystery Sock KAL again this year.
I sat down to swatch on Monday, and a day and a half later I had a sock. I hope it's as much fun to knit as it was to design.
The first clue will go up here on my blog on Thursday, October 1 at 9 am (ish). I hope you join us!
The pattern is free. It will be offered in 5 parts: the cuff, the leg, the heel, the foot and the toe. I will post a new part here on my blog every Thursday during the month of October.
The pattern is worked in fingering weight yarn. I used Schaefer Yarns Nichole for the original design. (By the way, this stuff is really lovely to work with and the semi solid colorways show patterning really nicely.)
I worked the sample on a US #2 (2.75mm) needle. Relaxed the sock measures 6” it will stretch to fit 9.5”.
My gauge is 29 sts=4” (10cm) in stockinette.
My sock used a 64 stitch cast on. I will try to adapt it for 68 sts & 60 sts. But I can’t make any promises until I play with the charts a bit.
I will offer both charts and written instructions for the stitch patterns.
There will be prizes. The winner(s) will be chosen from a random drawing of those who complete their pair by the end of November. More details to follow.
That’s all I can think of for now.
