small skill level requirement Beginner

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit, purl, knit a heel flap, turn a heel, pick up gusset stitches

Pattern Description:

Due to some anxiety-inducing issues over which I had no control, I cast on for a sock in order to focus on something else. The little twisted cable stitches (no cable needle required) were great for keeping track of where I was in my pattern and also made it easier to knit the second sock -- I just counted twists to duplicate the point at which I started my heel flap and did the same thing when it was time to shape the toe.

While I hope you aren't feeling as fretful as I was when I knit this sock, I hope it provides you with knitting pleasure! I chose a merino/silk blend and enjoyed every minute of it.

I've been crafting since I was young! I caught the bug when I was old enough to use scissors and glue. I remember growing up in Turkey and my first grade teacher brought in an artist to teach us how to create mosaics with broken tiles. From there, it was sewing, knitting, crocheting, rubber-stamping, cross-stitch, and now weaving.
