Knitting on public transport is a somewhat specialised sport. You want to not infringe on other passengers’ personal space, and you also want to work on something interesting that doesn’t need frequent pattern checks or complicated stitch manoeuvres. Socks are some of the most ideal travelling knits for that reason. I designed these socks to knit during my commute to work; interesting to knit but at the same time not require too much looking at a pattern or fiddly stitches. It is called Train Spotting in honour of the reason behind this pattern and because I think the little eyelet windows in the pattern look like the flashing windows of a train going by.

S = 15.5cm/6.2” leg circumference
M = 18cm/7” leg circumference
L = 20.5cm8” leg circumference

This pattern is an 8 stitch repeat and can easily be sized up or down for child or extra-large sized socks. Please bear in mind that larger sizes may require more yarn.
