Well, in the introduction to my Eight Days A Week Collection I mention that the choice of the songs was done without a meaning behind it. The compilation is by no means a ‘best of’ nor is it the music I typically listen to, but I’ve chosen songs that I like for one reason or the other – may it be the voice, the melody, the rhythm, the lyrics…, songs that were earworms at a certain time, songs that I had an idea how to interpret in a pattern… you get the idea.
In today's case we talk about an earworm that by the time it was popular I found quite annoying... Saturday Night by Whigfield. Dee dee na na na...
Back in the 90’s when the song was popular, I lived in Spain next to an open-air club. Can you guess what I listened to every single night and sometimes even more than once? Hm... But I sure gave me an idea for my Saturday Socks. If you’ve ever seen a crowd doing the dance to this song, I’m sure you know right away why I created a ‘waves’ pattern for these socks.
Small lines of twisted stitches form thanks to lots and lots 1/1 cables waves on a background in reverse Stockinette stitch. The patterning is continued onto the heel flap and the toe.
Do you want to knit your own pair of Saturday Night socks? You can get the pattern as individual download or as part of the Eight Days A Week collection from my Ravelry store, here.
