One of the patterns I absolutely enjoyed designing and that is still one of my favourites is Cube Socks, so I more than happy that it is finally available from my Ravelry store.
The socks are mainly worked in intarsia in the round and I know that not everyone likes intarsia, but it really is easy-peasy. There is a pictured tutorial in the pattern and I'm sure it enables even newbie intarsia knitters to manage the technique.
The socks as shown require five colours of sock weight yarn, approximately 25 go of each. However, when I started with the pattern, what I had in mind was to make use of leftover bits and bobs of yarn. Each block uses less than 5 g - can't you just imagine these using different colours for each block?
I hope, others will like the idea just as much as I do. And if so, Cube Socks is now available from my Ravelry store, here.
