I thought I’d share some pictures of this very interesting sock in progress. The pattern is called Posey, it’s free, and can be found here. The sock is made by knitting little mitered squares in rows for the leg and the top of the foot.
When all the squares are done for one sock, it looks something like this. I had to modify one section to fit my short feet. Doesn’t look very socklike, does it? But with a simple seam…
…you can now see the shape of sockiness. I’m working on the heel flap now. This is a great “new things” pattern, because not only am I diving into the addictive world of mitered squares, but I’ll be learning a new way to do the sole of a foot with an existing top, and I’ll also learn how to do a picot hem for the top of the leg. Good times.
The yarn is Twisted Fiber Arts Kabam! in the Talon colorway.
