Mystery Sock 2012!!

Mystery Sock KAL 2012

Thank you to all of those who have asked about this KAL, for your encouragement and patience. I am very happy to announce the TTL Mystery Sock KAL. I am really excited about this year’s design. It is my favorite to date!!

KAL Details:
The clues for this KAL will be sent to you by mid-day (probably earlier) on the 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd, & 29th of January.

Please join the Through the Loops group on Ravelry and participate in the discussion here. Questions are most easily addressed in this group forum. Always ask your questions in the group forum first, PM’s and emails will take longer to answer.

There will be separate threads for each week of the KAL. Only post spoiler photos in the appropriate spoiler thread.

When adding your project to Raverly be courteous to other participants in the KAL and make your first photo a “Spoiler Alert”.

Choosing a Size & Gauge:
Gauge: 39 sts & 48 rows = 4”/10cm in (k1 tbl, p1) rib, relaxed

Please take the time to check your gauge and adjust the needle size as necessary. Gauge varies widely from knitter to knitter.

This pattern is offered in two sizes which, when worked at the gauge given in this pattern will fit the sizes indicated. To make the sock larger or smaller adjust the needle size and/or yarn to achieve a larger or smaller gauge.

If you would like to swatch before the KAL begins, cast on 64(72) sts and work (k1 tbl, p1) ribbing in the round for a few inches. Measure your gauge over this swatch or simply try the cuff on to see if the fit works.

Think of the cuff as your gauge swatch and try it on once it is complete. If the gauge needs to be adjusted, rip back and try again.

Choosing Yarn:
A solid or semi solid color is best. This sock has patterning that will be lost with most variegated or striped yarns.

Since fingering weight yarns range from quite thin to almost sport weight your yarn choice will affect the finished size of your sock. If you have a narrow foot/ankle choose a finer yarn, if you have a wider foot/ankle choose a heavier yarn.

A Bit About the Design:
This sock will be worked from the cuff down with a heel flap. The design and sizing are intended for women.

Skills Needed:
Knitting in the round on double pointed needles, two circulars or magic loop. Instructions will be given for DPN’s
Grafting (Kitchener Stitch)
Twisted sts (k tbl)
Bobbles
Cables
