Why not try it with DK or worsted weight yarn and get a larger and squooshier cowl for the cold winter days? The pattern only has one chart which is a simple 6 stitch, 12 row repeat. This link will take you to the pattern on Ravelry. And more travelling down the leg of the sock, ending in an interesting cabled heel, that everyone loved, and said was the best of all! Blue Moon Socks that Rock or the sock will be bigger than designed unless you want it that way.
This sock is constructed top-down. The pattern is lacy, so I have reduced the number of stitches to give the sock a snug fit for the specified sizes. It is available in medium and large size — the large uses a 64 stitch cast on — if you do not like your sock too snug, this might be the better size for you.

It includes many lovely varieties that are used by florists, including dahlias, zinnias, chrysanthemums and sunflowers. The pattern was broken down into two clues, so I made the socks a bit different to my usual style to keep things interesting and to provide surprises along the way. The group has been working through the sock pattern this month.
Can you see the flowers, the leaves and the stem in the sock? There is also a pair in there that are mine.
Here are the lovely ladies, and yes, your eyes do not deceive you, that is indeed Audry whom you see! Audry was doing the lucky draw for the bag and goodies that you see on the left hand side of this picture. It was a lovely afternoon out and a nice way to start the long weekend. Stay tuned for more news on that subject. It will be nice to have a rest as I have been working non-stop this month, and am feeling a little more than exhausted!

I think she made a good recommendation! A whole year of yummy Hobbit inspired socks!! So excited! August 17, by kiwiyarns 11 Comments. Beware the fearsome Seadragonus Giganticus Maximus! Highly intelligent, with a huge, fearsome personality and a huge dash of cuteness in the case of Toothless, in any event , they come in blue, green or purple — all my favourite sock colours! When I first designed this sock, I was only going to release it in a standard medium size. But then I thought about the amount of questions I got for Anemone relating to adjusting the sock for small or large sizing, and I thought that it might be a good idea to include more sizes.
So I included a sturdy heel alternative as well. You are cordially invited to join the Kiwiyarns Knits group! The discount will be automatically applied on checkout, and you do not need to join the KAL to receive the discount.

I spied this pattern a while ago, but have been trying to find the right yarn for it. I think the thing that makes this sock pattern extra appealing is the quality of the yarn that the socks were knit in. I wanted to replicate that look. I thought it was an unusual blend for a sock yarn, and probably the original intention for this yarn was not for socks. However, it makes a stunning sock! Especially in this pattern. Both are so cute! Once you get the hang of brioche knitting you can move right in to some pretty amazing garments.
