Last night, I finished another pair of socks
. Can you tell I'm loving having the summer off, even if my bank account is not.
This pattern is called Skew
. It's free, and you can find it here
look simple enough...stockinette stitch; however, this pattern called for a bit of a unique construction.
This construction, along with the endless increases and decreases, lends to the tilted affect. It also made for interesting heels...
I really love the lines that are created by the increases/decreases...
The yarn is Cascade Heritage Paints, and the colorway is #9906. It's the last of what I bought myself for my birthday in March. It was WONDERFUL to knit with...no splitting or anything! It was perfect for this pattern.
I knit this pattern on size 1 (2.5mm) needles, but I changed to 0's (2.00mm) for the ribbed cuff. It took me slightly over a week, so it is a fast knit.
Here are the rest of the pictures I took...
