Bowties are Cool
Bowties are cool.
I love Doctor Who and I really wanted a sock with a subtle nod to the Eleventh Doctor. Of course Barbara Walker had the perfect little bow tie stitch (in the Second Treasury). I modified it slightly to suit my needs. The stitch pattern is subtle and suitable for men or women.
The sock itself is basic flap and heel construction, but I’ve used a variation I learned at Sock Summit 2011 from Clara Parkes to add stretch to the flap and make the heel last longer. I really like how it looks too.
I absolutely love these socks, the bow ties are so fun to knit. I dare you not to think “Cool!” when you knit one.
9/2012 looks like in fixing a small error I accidentally introduced new errors! I think I have them corrected now.
