Green Goddess Socks use a simple twist stitch pattern to create an intricate looking geometric design. Constructed from the cuff down, yarn overs on alternate rounds add texture and a bit of laciness. The easily memorized stitch pattern will show through even with a variegated yarn. This is truly Green Goddess Dressing at its best!
Size: Women's average.
(The stitch pattern is very stretchy and will accommodate a range of sizes. If you have a very small foot, go down a needle size.)
Gauge: 30 sts/44 rows to 4 inches in stockinette
stitch, 44 sts to 4 inches in pattern stitch
Recommended yarn: Araucania Ranco Solid, 1 skein. Pictured in color #103
This is not a beginner pattern, but is easily completed by an intermediate beginner with sock experience or a more advanced knitter with no sock experience. Pattern assumes you can knit in the round on double pointed needles, read a 12 stitch/12 row chart, pick up stitches along heel flap, weave toe stitches together or do a 3-needle bind off. Pattern can be worked on two circular needles and grafting the toe together will eliminate the 3-needle bind off.
I have been knitting, designing and surrounding myself with yarn for more years than I care to admit. More recently I made the decision to formally publish my designs. In my day job, I run the online yarn shop Whitknits.com.
