From suffering from the summer heat to the first autumn storm in less than a week - not really happy that there might be a lot more of this grey, rain and 'ugh!' ahed. So some cheerfulness is definetly needed...
Like a new pair of socks in happy colours. Say hello to my Whirling Socks.
The socks are knitted form the cuff down, mainly in intarsia in the round technique. They are a great project for small amounts of yarn leftover from other projects, since for a pair as shown only about 25 g of fingering yarn in five colours are needed. The same colour is used for cuff, heel and toe and the same four colours are used for the stripes. But you can, of course, use as many colours as you like to use up smaller amounts of yarn.
The pattern includes three sizes to fit leg circumference 17.5 (20, 22.5) cm [7 (7.75, 8.75)”]. It comes with a detailed tutorial with pictures to explain the intarsia in the round technique.
As of today, the pattern is available form my Ravelry store, here: Whirling Socks.
