Knitting socks with self striping yarn is quick and easy, and can be done without problems in front of the TV. My latest knitting project however, is not recommended for TV-knitting as you have to concentrate on the pattern. I tried that on the second pair when I thought I “knew” the pattern, but had to unstitch several times. Still, it is such a fun pattern that I have already started on my third pair of socks.
Here are a couple of photos of the second pair, – I forgot to take photos of the first pair before I gave them away, – they were knitted with yarns in offwhite and black.
The pattern is from Jorids Strikkemønster. The text is in Norwegian only, but the diagrams are very good. The pattern at the top of the page there is a free download.
