Fretful Socks Fretful Sock

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.
