Scroll Down

Not for February's draw, of course, but four months after the pattern came out, I've finally got around to making Scrolls! =)

I used the discontinued Knit Picks Dancing (Square Dance) that I've had in my stash for a few years, and I'm really happy with how they've come out. The cotton content should make these a nice pair of summer socks.

I ripped the original heel back, and knitted a plain flap instead because the texture of the stitches in this particular yarn felt really uncomfortable. KP Dancing isn't soft! I also worked a wide toe (from Nancy Bush's Folk Socks), which is my current favourite. Oh, and I offset the pattern for sock #2 to make it a mirror image of the first.

Thanks for the patterns, Anni. I fully intend to get more of them knitted up, honest! =)

I love my Dancing socks. A shame the yarn was discontinued.

Love them. Must have a look at my Folk Socks for the toe you did.
