a Jaywalker KAL
ok, this pattern is so easy to remember!! i know i am not the only one to be knitting this right now, and i am sure i won't be the last.
jaywalker pattern here
some jaywalkers here
alterations to pattern
toe up jaywalker

i am using some knitpicks bare superwash (don't remember if it has nylon) that i dyed in a colorway that reminds me of the roses in my front yard, i call it Nana's Garden. i am also using 2 size one circs (susan bates quicksilver)

here is the start of my first jaywalker sock (i decided to forgo the ribbing and also make a shorter (probably 4 inch) cuff... and the crappy photo is taken on my cell. better ones in the future!

if you didn't do the ribbing did you start right off with the pattern?

yep! i just cast on 84 and then my first row was the pattern. it's very easy to memorize! i thought for sure it would be harder. i need to go to get ink for my printer so i can have the heel, foot and toe part in front of me

i worked on my sock a bit, about 6 rounds! i decided to pull it on, and i am glad i did the larger (84) cast on! it streches a bit to fit over my heel, so they should be comfy socks
oh, and i was a little worried about color pooling, but it's not a problem!

Oh I'd like to join this KAL! I'm using the pattern for my toe-up worsted slipper socks, with some modifications of course. I've only done a few rows so far, but I'm liking how it looks!

I think I'll use this as an excuse to try a different heel than short row as well...

Those colours are so pretty Jeani!

I started knitting these just the other day! Count me in. I'm putting them on hold until I can get another set of size 1 DPNs. One of mine broke, which wasn't too bad until I noticed that the puppy had EATEN 2 more. It's hard to knit with only 2 DPNs. Grr!
