About the designer

I've been crafting since forever, knitting fanatically since about 2006 and designing since 2008. When not knitting, I teach university students about primates and play with my horses.

Paisley Socks
Paisley Socks

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knitting in the round
  • chart reading

Pattern Description:

Random fact about me: I LOVE paisley. I don't know why, but I do and have done for a long time now. I am also determined to figure out how to knit cables in a paisley pattern to make myself a cardigan with the design. Alas, I have yet to figure it out (but I WILL!!!). In the mean time, this design sort of reminded me of paisley (hence the name).

It's a top-down sock, with no cabling involved. It's all twisted stitches, increases and decreases. Yet it swirls around quite nicely if I do say so myself.
