Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Crocheting In the Round
  • Post stitches

Pattern Description:

Queen is one of the very first rock bands I listened to. Freddie Mercury will always live in my heart as one of the greatest singers in history. It was a very sad day when his light was taken from this world into the next.

We Will Rock You / We Are The Champions are another two songs that seem to evoke my emotions. I remember driving to Volleyball games and listening to these songs, belting them out with my teammates in preparation to win our matches. Everytime they are played at a professional ball game, it still floors me when you can hear almost the entire crowd sing these songs.

We Are The Champions socks were designed with the sports theme in mind. As 2012 is an Olympics year the colors of Gold, Silver and Bronze were used in the yarn. Tube sock style, they are simple socks to make, with just a hint of looped cables signifying team-work.
