Route 66 Socks

These socks were nice to knit. Once again the pattern is from Stephanie Van Der Linden’s Around the World in Knitted Socks, may favourite book. These are now a belated birthday present for my brother.

I have learned to knit holding the different colours of yarn in each hand, so with this pattern there is never a need to twist (or untwist) the yarn. The only potential pitfall I can see in this pattern is on the sole. Because the sole is evenly striped, it’s easy to get ridges and bumps from the colour switch. You need to be careful of the tension of the yarn that’s being carried – not to let it get too tight.

Next up: Herringbone socks from the same book.
