So if you follow me in ALL THE PLACES! You will know that in last weeks update we had a guest base that is a double knit sock yarn. The goal of this blog post is to give you some inspiration oh what socks you could knit with our beefed-up doll base.
I will preface that I'm finding it hard to give alternative links to Ravelry not because oh my god its too hard to look, but so many designers only have their patterns on Ravelry. So what I think I will do from here on in is I will tell you its a Ravelry link or an alternative link, but if no alternative is possible I will leave an Instagram account for the designer so if you are desperate for a pattern and don't want to/can't go via Rav you could drop them a message there. I hope that works.
Right, let us get on with this sock extravaganza.
Winter Sleep Socks by Helen Stewart
I'm going, to be honest. the whole guest base was for my benefit, and when I started on my sock pattern search I was looking mostly for socks that would be comfy and have a wee bit of leg, I like the idea of hand knit socks peeping out over my shoes (trainers, I don't wear shoes)These socks were the first ones that were the length I was looking for and then I saw that stitch pattern. oh, my word they look so smooshy. Also, Helen Stewarts patterns are always very well written so would always recommend.
Spree Socks by Kemper Wray
I had to include these babies as I have knit this pattern before, its an excellent pattern makes a stunning pair of socks that will let your metal yarn do the talking. Note to self, finish the first pair from this pattern that you started!
