Inspired by a traditional Norwegian stitch pattern, these socks feature an allover stitch pattern that looks like a flock of birds (or flocked cloth). Flanked by garter stitch seams and garter stitch details, making for an architectural sock that can be worn by both men and women.
Due to the unusual nature of the stitch pattern, the instructions are written line-by-line and not charted. Pattern includes both US Standard and metric sizing.
Sample shown was knit using one skein of Malabrigo Sock in the color "Lettuce" .
36 stitches and 48 rows = 4 inches in Stockinette
I love socks, lace, and all sorts of "traditional" knitting subjects. I studied Classics and textile history (independent minor) at Uni and have a love of anything ancient. That said, I also like to mix it up with modern shapes and silhouettes, often with a little tradition thrown in for fun.
