Hello Bsktwvr, Thanks. Hubby loves them and each time he wears them he is reminded how warm and cozy they are.

Beautiful! I admire your willingness to tackle entrelac in the small units!

CCaarrooll, Thanks. After some adjustments to the original pattern by Stephanie Van Der Linden, these socks were fun to knit. The yarn does all the work to show off the entrelac. If you are interested on seeing more details on these socks you can check out my video diary where I show them and talk about my knitting beginning at about 2 minutes 20 seconds at : http://traffic.libsyn.com/quiltmoxie/7DoubleKnitting.mp4

I love this idea and will definitely give it a try! Did you reduce the number of stitches, or change needle size, to make the entrelac portion smaller?

05/30/2014 Flag

Yes, you are correct. The entrelac portion had to be reduced because it grows on the diagonal. Followed a pattern. You can see the details of the project on Ravelry.
