The second of my contributions for the 2015 round of Super Sock Scarefest. This beauty is based on one of the best of the worst vampire movies ever made…Blacula! The design embodies colors we usually associate with vampires, as well as splashes of colors associated with Nigeria (where Blacula is from). The pattern itself is inspired by one found on traditional Nigerian cloth. Together they represent what Blacula was before meeting Dracula, and what he would go on to become.

To knit this design, you should be familiar with:

  • Following a chart
  • Basic sock construction
  • Stranding and colorwork

Kits for this pattern are available through the ZomariDyelabs etsy shop:
