Pattern Spotlight: Traveling Vines Socks

Traveling Vines SocksKnit sock patterns come in all shapes and sizes. The Traveling Vines Socks featured in the October 2015 issue of I Like Knitting are not only a bold fall statement, they are fun to knit, and from looking at the vines that snake up the top of the foot onto the cuff, you can see why. While the pattern that zig-zags along the sock may look complicated, it’s a simple series of slipped stitches that are done with either knit or purls that create the great design. Pattern designer Renee West has created a wonderful knit sock pattern that features 3 different sizes, so you’ll be able to knit up a pair to fit practically any size foot.

Knit from the cuff down in a bold purple, these socks make a perfect addition to your fall wardrobe and add a surprising pop of color when you least expect it. The deep solid color allows the delicate nature of the slipped stitch design to really stand out, so keep that in mind when you choose the colors. Using a variegated color might make your stitch design fade to the background rather than becoming the spotlight of the knit sock pattern. To really help the sock fit properly, the heel flap is knit with gussets to perfect the shape and keep the sock snug. Once you are past the heel, the vine continues to snake down the top of the foot to the toe. You’ll really love how these socks fit and will fall in love with the bold color!
