... finally got its long overdue revision and is now available for individual download: Nocked Socks.
When Knitscene Accessories announced the theme Hunger Games a while back, I knew that I wanted to contribute a pattern right away and an idea formed in my mind immediately. Socks, reminiscent of an arrow, inspired by the main character’s weapon of choice in the arena. And here they are.
The cuff is shaped with short-rows and combined with the twisted stitches on the leg it forms the fletching; the twisted stiches on the instep form the arrowhead. Take a good aim!
The socks are knitted in the round, from the cuff down with heel flap and gusset. Because most of the fabric is biased and increases and decreases are always made in the same place, the socks look skewed before blocking, but they fit snugly and comfortably and they sure are an eye-catching pair of socks.
The pattern includes three sizes: Women’s S, M and L to fit leg circumference 16.5 (19, 21.5) cm 6.5 (7.5, 8.5)”, foot length is 19.75 (23, 25.5) cm 7.75 (9, 10)”, adjustable. It is a written pattern only without any charts.
The digital pattern for Nocked Socks is now available from my Ravelry pattern store, here.
