Here’s another beautiful sock pattern by Penny Schumers who designs her patterns under the name Knit-by-Bit Designs. I test knitted these socks a few months ago: The Rose is Magical Socks. Penny actually featured some of my pictures on her project page which is always an honour 🙂
This pattern is gorgeous and perceptively easy. Most of the stitches are repeated row after row and only four of the 24 rows is where the cabling occurs. It’s really worth the effort as you’ll end up with a gorgeous pair of socks.
The yarn I used is Patons Patonyle Merino Ombre 4ply and it is incredibly soft and the way it’s dyed gives an interesting effect.
This was the 65th pair of socks off the needles!! Not sure what it is about socks but you’ve either got the sock knitting bug or not 🙂
Until next time…
