Knit Original Cuff-Down Socks »
InstructionsI used the Seaweed pattern given in the course materials
Type of item: Clothing
Style: Outdoorsy, Casual
100% wool, 5-ply I used teal on the main part of the sock and purple variegated yarn on the cuff and toe
What was your inspiration?
I have knitted several pairs of socks in the past six months just using plain ribbing and/or stockinette stitch. While they look nice and are functional, I wanted to try out a pattern too. When Donna showed this pattern in the class, I liked it and decided to try it out.
What are you most proud of?
I'm happy they socks turned out the same size!! (occasionally mine haven't) I'm also happy the pattern worked out well and I was able to make these on 2 circular needles instead of the dpn's. This is a first for me.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Believe you CAN do a pattern, for starters. This one is fairly simple, with just a 6-st repeat. Take your time and enjoy the process.
