operation sock drawer: 8 free sock patterns that I love
After declaring that I will have a drawer full of hand knit socks, you might be wondering what types of socks will I knit.
I only started knitting socks about 2 years ago but I realized that although they were time consuming, for me, they were a very satisfying knit. I loved that feel of hand knit socks on my feet and I loved looking down to see the colourful yarn, and remembering when and where I knit them.
So, I decided to be organized and queued up 8 sock patterns that I love the look of and that I will strive to make this year. They also happen to be free!
Though it's an older pattern (from 2008 actually), it's also published in knitty.com. This pattern looks challenging but has a simple-to-read chart, so I'm game to attempt it. I love the name as Fruit Loops was a favourite cereal of mine as a kid.
So those are my picks for my year of the sock. I'm sure I'll add a few more to the list over the course of the year, but these are my current faves. Do you have a sock pattern that you want to try? I'd love to check it out, too!
