I’m loving the knitting pattern I am using to knit a pair of socks, for my project for May. I stumbled across this pattern on Ravelry, and I am so glad. I think this will be one of my go to patterns in the future.
I love the look of intricately
patterned socks, but I like the feel of wearing plain stockinette stitch or
socks made from a plain ribbing. When I found this pattern I knew it would be
the perfect blend for my fussy tastes – it has the perfect blend of plain
stockinette stitch on the bottom, a cable-look on top for visual interest, and
some ribbing for comfortable stretch.
The pattern is by a knitting designer
named Jen in Chicago. She has designed a perfect blend of knitting two stitches
together, yarn overs and twisted stitches to result in a cable-look without
that pesky cable needle. You can find her ideas and patterns on her blog at http://www.knittinglikecrazy.com/.
Here is what my version of Jen’s faux
cable looks like.
