It's release day, folks, and I couldn't be happier! The lastest Knit PIck's collection with sock patterns is now available for download: Electric Slide!
And I'm thrilled to telll you that I have not one, but two patterns in the collection - woohoo!
First is Flowering Meadow.
These toe-up socks have an unusual gusset construction with the gusset increases worked on the instep and a stitch pattern reminiscent of flowers that is started on the instep and then gradually takes over the complete leg. In my opinion it's a stitch pattern that works very well with variegated, busy yarn, don't you think?
My second pattern in the collection is Bend Lines and if you've followed my chatting here, you may know that I have a special fancy for socks in ribbing pattern, even better when there is a way to spice the ribbing up a bit. Like with these ones.
Bend Lines sock are worked cuff down and thanks to cleverly placed decreases and increases, the ribbing forms diagonall, slightly bend lines. The pattern is continued onto the heel flap, the gusset and also the toe. I think I have a new favourite to wear.
There are 14 more just as stunning sock patterns by fellow designers in the collection, and all patterns can be purchased individually or as part of the collection and in a couple of weeks there'll be also printed copies available. You can find all the details here, click.
