I have made these socks previously but this pattern appears to be a ‘go to’ pattern for me as the finished socks always look great! It’s a free pattern I found on Ravelry called Simple Skyp Socks and they sure are simple. They’re a cuff down pattern and I use five dpns. I can’t seem to deviate from cuff down despite knowing that toe up socks are better when you have limited yarn and can only use half for one sock.
I used two 50g balls of Regia Design Line by Kaffe Fassett 4-fädig which is an amazing sock yarn as it comes in so many lovely colours.
The second pair also uses the same yarn but in other very vivid colours.
The colours are so vibrant; they stripe well and give great stitch definition.
Sometimes it’s just nice to have a simple pattern to add some interest to your socks. I highly recommend this pattern!
As summer rolls into Brisbane I’m not sure why I’m still knitting socks but it seems to be an obsession with me!!
I’ve also been in quite a massive decluttering mode and going through my entire stash and selling the yarn I know I probably won’t use. I seem to gravitate towards 4ply and a bit of 2ply so most of my 8ply wool is now sold. Next I’ll start on all the baby yarn I own and try and destash most of it.
Until next time…
