The violet socks are finished!

Completed violet sock

I couldn't resist this charming design and joined Six Sox Knitalong. This is how much I have made so far:

Cloverleaf Eyelet Rib Socks

And since I can't leave things alone, I have made some mods:

  • cast on 60 sts using long tail cast on;
  • added a 1" 1/1 rib;
  • started the pattern repeat with k5, instead of p1;
  • on row 4 I k2tog, yo instead of yo, ssk.

I made a little chart of the pattern repeat because I find charts easier to read than written instructions.

I am using Novita Nalle yarn and 2.5mm needles. The yarn is supposed to be baby weight, but it works up like fingering weight.

I will be alternating these socks with Critter Knitter's blankets and Landsknecht hose for a friend.

P.S. This post was supposed to be written yesterday. For some strange reason I slept the whole day, so I posted this today.
