Berry Picking Socks
We all know I love doing sock designs. This time it is the July Sock of the Month club design for theknitter.com. Judy provided me with a skein of Kertzer On Your Toes Bamboo. I had never seen this sock yarn before… It is a sport weight sock yarn with no wool content whats so ever. With the yarn’s bright purple color, and it being the middle of summer, I kept thinking about berries. I was also wondering how well a non-wool sock would stay up on the leg. I came across a neat basket weave ribbing, and I immediately thought of a basket of berries.
The Berry Picking Socks are knit from the top down. The leg is composed of a basket weave ribbing that runs into the heel flap and gives the socks a snug, but elastic, fit. The foot is sprinkled with a lacy little eyelet berry motif. The yarn is heavier, which means the socks fly off the needles in no time, but it still has a nice summery feel.
This pattern is currently only available through theKnitter.com. It will be available to the general public this fall.
