My Sock-Along 2020
In September 2020, I collaborated with Knotty Habit , one of my favourite South African indie dyers, who graciously offered discounts on their KYSO range of yarn and accessories to anyone who wanted to knit socks with me. I am grateful to Knotty Habit for working with someone who had never knitted socks before. Knitting socks is something I’ve always wanted to do, but I’ve always been a little intimidated by its construction. So, I thought why not knit along in a group, because that makes it just a little less intimidating – hence the sock-along.
This sock-along is not based on my own pattern, but from a range of sources – all available freely. To put together this sock-along, I’ve watched a number of videos and read through various blogs and patterns. To ensure that credit is given to the real designers and experts, all references to particular statements, diagrams and pattern stitches where relevant is provided as footnotes in the pattern. This also allows you to access any of the original posts, videos, patterns, etc. if something I’ve said or interpreted does not make sense to you.
Here is a copy of my fully referenced guide to knitting socks.
