I was in a really horrible situation. My family and I were on a three-hour road trip last summer and I was bored. I really wanted to knit, but inspiration was not coming when I cast on. I was hot and tired and frustrated. I shoved my yarn into my bag and took out a piece of paper and my iPod, which I set on shuffle. After skipping several songs, I settled on a simple guitar rift and Adele’s down-to-earth crooning “Daydreamer.” I doodled, letting my mind meander, not really paying attention to what I was drawing. After the song was done, I was a bit more relaxed and open. I looked down at what I had drawn, and lo and behold! Inspiration struck, blindingly.

The final product is what you see here. This well-conceived structure is set on a reverse stockinette canvas and is very visually appealing. It’s also a bit thicker- just in case winter isn’t all the way over where you live, or you are fearing one last cold spell before spring is finally here. For the best results, knit this in a semi-solid or solid color, so it doesn’t overwhelm the pattern. The socks are mirror images.
