Last week, when I was talking about my love of Hermione’s Everyday Socks, I mentioned that they were probably on my Mt. Rushmore of knitting.
I’m not sure why, but that phrase got stuck in my head and I’ve been thinking about it ever since.
And this happened (I’m not great at Photoshop, but it is fun):(I think Roosevelt looks particularly fetching in his PussyHat.)
What patterns (besides the Hermione socks) are really on my Mt. Rushmore?
Elizabeth Zimmermann’s Baby Surprise Jacket is definitely up there. I love how it’s constructed- it’s so clever and interesting. And, it’s perfect for using up all my leftover sock yarn!If we’re going by sheer number of times I’ve worked a pattern, the Mother Bear teddy bears have got to be up there. They’re simple, quick (ish), and are for a great cause.And, it feels a little weird to put this on here, since it’s my own pattern, but I flipping love my Socks By the Numbers pattern (though I should probably look it over again… it’s been years since I actually read it, and I’m sure it’s full of typos). I love this simple technique for making perfectly-fitting socks in any size. I’ve made dozens and dozens of socks using this system, and it makes me happy every time.I know you’ve got all-time favorite patterns, too. Are they perfectly-written, interesting patterns? Or some simple pattern you’ve knit dozens of times?
