03-04-2009, 06:19 PM
I'm working on a lace sock pattern right now, which I plan to have for sale on Ravelry once I get all the kinks out. If anyone would like to test it for errors when I get it all written up, send me a PM and I'll send it to you.

Still not finished knitting the socks, but I've finished writing out the pattern. Here are pics of the WIP:

They look great! Love the color! I'd be happy to test the pattern, but as I have yet to knit a sock, I doubt I would be a good subject lol!!

Socks are surprisingly easy to do. I remember I was extremely intimidated because if you've ever noticed, sock patterns are usually VERY long! But it's really really easy if you just follow the directions.

yo - yarn over
Skop - Slip 1 stitch purlwise, knit next stitch, yo, pass slipped stitch over knit stitch (psso) and yarn over
drop yo - Knit all stitches but the yarn overs. Don't knit the yarn overs from your previous row; just let them drop off the needle.
kf/b - Knit into the front and back of the st
ktbl - Knit through the back loop of the st
m1f - Make One Front: From the front, lift loop between stitches with left needle, knit into back of loop.
instep: The top of the sock

If you can do those, you can make my socks.

Pretty. I love the green. Looks like a nice pattern.

I'm still looking for testers if anyone's interested!

These look great! I would love to try them. I'm fairly fast with socks. I'll give them a try.

I'd love to test your pattern! Is there anything really different about it?

I'm working on a pair now that should be done in about a week, since baby clothes are also OTN.

There are only four rows for the lace pattern, and they're very easy to remember. Surprisingly stretchy as well. They're done toe-up with a short-row heel and toe. No grafting!
