Hope you all like socks because I have yet another new sock pattern to reveal! This time it is the February design for theKnitter.com’s luxury sock of the month club, and I really love the way this one turned out.
These socks are knit from the top down using Malabrigo Sock yarn. (Oh, how I love thee, Malabrigo Sock.) When I designed these socks, I had just finished up the Sock Knitters Anonymous January Mystery sock design. Remember Gansey Girl? That design had really gotten me thinking about ganseys, so I just had to do another gansey inspired design.
The sock incorporates classic gansey knit-purl textures and simple rope cables. I like the combination so much that I see a related sweater design on the horizon…
Notice how the gansey patterning goes down into the heel and toe? I like that, too.
This design is available exclusively through theKnitter.com’s luxury sock club until July 2010. At that time, I will make it available to all.
