Woo! New pattern day!
And this is a good one- it’s socks!
Introducing, my newest (and current favorite) socks: Phinney Ridge Socks!
Look at them in all their stripey goodness!
They’re fairly simple top-down socks with stripes from cuff to toe with an interesting slipped-stitch pattern along the tops. (The slipped stitches make them look much more interesting/difficult than they actually are, which is something I always look for in a pattern.)
These guys use a skein of solid black, and a pack of contrasting mini-skeins, but they’d be a great way to use that special hand-dyed variegated yarn you brought back from your last trip to New York, or maybe a really great ombre-dyed skein that you bought on impulse three years ago and haven’t figure out how to use yet.
If you’re looking for other patterns for your fancy-pants sock yarn, you should check out the rest of this Knit Picks collection! Outrageous Insteps is all about using those special skeins of sock yarn.
I really like these chevron-textured socks!
And the crazy slipped stitch pattern on these bad boys is super cool! I’ve never tried slipped stitches like this before!
And these socks‘ little one-stitch cables on the striped background- perfection!
I can’t wait to dig into my yarn stash and find something really special to try on some of these patterns.
Do you have any particularly special skeins you’re looking for a pattern for?
