Peregrinate verb
- to travel, especially on foot

You know when your knitting hits that perfect, meditative place? The spot where your fingers know just what to do and your stitches flow perfectly and all you have to do is sit back and admire your work? Well these totally hit that spot for me!

The pattern on the leg is very mellow. Just knits, purls, and teeny tiny cables. You’ll have it memorized in no time, and the result is something really fetching.

Things get a little more interesting when you get to the foot. The main pattern slowly meanders off toward the side, leaving a swath of purl stitches in its wake. And of course I included instructions for just continuing the pattern all the way down the foot (in case you’re madly in love with it and can’t bear to stop), but I think the purl stitches are rather charming.

The combination makes for a perfectly soothing, perfectly lovely sock that you’ll love knitting.

These are perfect for you if:

  • You’re looking for some marvelously relaxed knitting
  • You love mirrored socks

They’re not for you if:

  • You don’t like charts (the pattern uses charts)
  • You hate swatching (you need to swatch to check your needle size)
