My first patterned socks

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.

You Can Make This

BeckyP made My first patterned socks with:

Knit Original Cuff-Down Socks

Online Class

Knit Original Cuff-Down Socks

with Donna Druchunas

  • 100% wool
  • 5-ply I used teal on the main part of the sock and purple variegated yarn on the cuff and toe

Q&A with BeckyP

Davesmom asked:
I really like your socks! The colors are cool, my favorite colors.
BeckyP answered:
Thanks. By the way, your profile name gave me a bit of a start as my husband's name is Dave. Funny.
PamelaMarie asked:
Your devotion to knitting shows! I, too, once used that seaweed pattern for a pair of fingerless mitts. I couldn't seem to "get with" the pattern sequence. :( Good for you to stick with it! Thanks for sharing. You are instigating the desire to pick up that project once again.
BeckyP answered:
I'm glad. I'll be waiting to see a photo of your finished mitts :)
