Ewe and I Knit- Spiral In, Spiral Out Socks
2023 Slow Yarn Crawl pattern from Ewe and I!
Spiral In, Spiral Out Socks by Paul Pratt
I've been having fun playing with colorwork, and wanted to create a piece that uses cables of different colors to create a multi-layer 3D effect in the fabric. This pattern uses Mosaic/Slipped stitch knitting to complete, so each color is worked for x2 rounds at a time, slipping only the cable stitches of the opposite color (purl-wise). It is extremely helpful to know how to do a 1/1 cable cross without using a cable needle- written instructions will be provided in the text instructions. The pattern as written is for socks to fit women's shoe size 5-7. To increase/decrease size, stitches/subtracted in multiples of 4 to accommodate the stitch repeat of the pattern.
Yarn:One skein each- Dream In Color with Cashmere by Jilly Bean fingering weight yarn (color Dream Girls #907 originally used, color A), and Electralite fingering weight yarn (color White w/ silver Angelina originally used originally, color B)
Needle: Size 2 6" DP needles
Notions: Stitch marker for beginning of round, and another one to mark the start and end of the sole sts.Tape measure to check gauge and size
