Our favourite is Barney. So, I thought I’d dedicate a pair of socks to him. As you can see, they are…
…wait for it…
That’s right, legendary!
So suit up!
What I liked
I did intarsia in the round! I used the yarnover method on one pair, but as discussed for my granddad’s socks, they leave a seam.
For the second sock I tried my own method, which is a bit of intarsia mingled with stranded knitting. I’m working on a tutorial now and hoping to publish it soon!
I knitted the ‘legen’ pattern over the 34 stitches that made up the front leg of the sock. The ‘dary’ pattern only took up 29 stitches, so I added 5 extra background-coloured stitches to the sides, to make it end up in the middle.
