Day of the Dead Socks
The title of this project means Little Clocks of Sand, referring to the emblematic hourglass, one of Death’s many symbols that allude to the passage of time and man’s mortality. The symbol for infinity borrows this image, too, and is a little hourglass on its side.
An easy knit and purl stitch ribbed. Was designed using an hourglass theme for the Anticraft’s dia de los muertos theme for their Samhain 2008 issue. Includes calf and ankle measurements included for custom fit. Larger size needles are for cast off only.
Thanks to Jennifer Gwiazdowski for modelling both pairs
Thanks to Joeli Caparco for knitting the knee high pink socks
The 2nd round is a little tricky, but you can see a YouTube video tutorial on how to do this on Erssie’s website in tutorials. http://www.erssieknits.com
