Olga sukat »
InstructionsThe link leads to a Finnish site, but if you want, it'll be easy enough to translate. It is the basic pattern grandma Olga used until her 90's to knit socks with. Hit me with a message and I'll give you the basics on the pattern (with the assumption that you know how to knit a sock to begin with, that is)
Type of item: Accessory
Berroco Sox Jellybeans
What was your inspiration?
My daughter's friend asked me to knit her another pair of socks, and she chose this yarn out of my (extensive) stash. Because the color ran in such long sections, the Olga sock was the natural choice for a pattern.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
The cuff should've been a couple of rows of garter stitch. Mistake I won't make again. I hope you won't, either.
