Stroll by Knit Picks. Colorway is Cartoons.
Beautiful stitchery and great colorway.
Thank you, Tom.
Definitely a good looking sock and the color is like "POW"! Definitely up
Thank you, Nehkhasi. I appreciate that.
Nice, I'd wear those! :) I'm actually working on a pair for a friend in a
similar colorway though more hot color-limited. I find myself going more and
more for toe-ups when I have the foot available, because you can fit it as
you go. If all I have is a shoe size (since socks I gift tend to get sent
long distances), then I go with top-down. I don't know if anyone really
notices the difference but it certainly is nice to hear someone say "they fit
Thank you, Bob. Top-down never really worked out for me. Once I got the
feel for Judy's Magic Cast-On and found the sock pattern that I referenced,
there was no looking back for me. Enjoy your evening in Istanbul.
Looking good. I've only knit one pair of toe ups and struggled a bit. I'll
keep your pattern in mind for a future project.
Thanks, Joe. Please do keep the pattern in mind. I struggled for a few
years in finding a standard pattern that would fit my feet. I have small feet
and standard ones just didn't cut it. Thanks to this one, they're custom and
fit very nicely.
Beautiful stitching, Calvin! I really like the color as well. Do you knit
from toe-up or toe-down. I like the heels and the sharp "line" of stitching
in the gusset. What pattern do you use?
Thank you, Mark. I knit my socks toe-up. The pattern is called "David's
Toe-Up Sock Cookbook" and can be found as a free pattern on Ravelry. This is
my favorite sock pattern because it's based on your gauge swatch and and only
two measurements from your foot. Give it a try.
Thanks! I just downloaded the pattern and see that my toe-up work is
different than his, which may be the cause of some parts that are not as
nicely put together as yours. I have been using Liat Gat's pattern and find
the increase edges sloppy compared to yours. The reason I chose Liat's
pattern is because I am not a happy camper when it comes to wrap and turns.
She does short rows but the wrap and turn are done in such a way that it's
easy to spot. Again, her heel is not one that I like as much as the one in
your pattern. Yea! Something to study and something more to learn!
