Socks are a good travel project because they're small and easy. I knitted the first sock while on a bus. I'm glad my sock-knitting yarn customer reminded me about the shadow wrap heel just before I left. I decided it would be easier than a conventional heel flap when moving along.
The stitch used in these socks is called Broken Seed Stitch. It's very clever, looks much more difficult than it is: Round 1, in natural, knit; Round 2 with variegated knit one, purl one; Round 3 with natural, knit: Round 4 with variegated, purl one, knit one. It looks like a slip stitch pattern, but isn't, and I think more flexible than a slip stitch pattern. I've used it before, but had to remind myself how to do it.
Those look very comfy!ReplyDelete

What an interesting effect that stitch gives. Thanks for explaining it, Jane.ReplyDelete
Beautiful stitch! 🧡💙🧡 And so much easier than the Honeycomb stitch, yet achieving the same effect.ReplyDelete
I am going to try that stitch. I love knitting socks while traveling and this sounds easy to do.ReplyDelete
Great. Thumbs up.Delete

Yes, I thought they could be mermaid socks!Delete
What an intriguing stitch. I would be tempted to try, but the only way I successfully knit is with a loom. I blame my atten.....SQUIRREL.ReplyDelete
