From Nancy Bush’s Pattern Introduction These striped socks were patterned on some in a photograph given to me by Helgi… the curator at the Hiiumaa Museum. There are two different socks in the photo, and I used both of them for inspiration. The larger pattern…is called Pikad Põrnikad or long beetle or bug. The other similar sideways/horizontal pattern…is the Vesikilgikiri or water cricket pattern. I didn’t worry about where the stripes met at the beginning of rounds, since I’ve noticed that many folk knitters weren’t the least bothered by little “jogs.”
