Pattern: November Socks (free Ravelry pattern)
Yarn: Regia Loop Color, 5768
The eighth pair of socks for the year. (We’re traveling back in time here. The Ugly Socks jumped the story queue because they were such a matter of tragedy and triumph.)
The November Socks pattern is wonderful. Simple, but with something interesting every 6 rounds to catch your attention and show you that you’ve made progress. It’s super stretchy, too, and would be a good choice if you were going to be giving socks to someone and weren’t absolutely sure of their size.
I modified this to be for Rainer. It was simple, since the pattern is in multiples of 8. I simply cast on 72 sts.
The designer of these socks, Birgitte Zeuner offered these for free, but they’re part of a great collection of 12 designs called A Year in Socks. You can get them separately on Ravelry or as a (much more cost-effective) collection on Etsy.
