Wee Tiny Sock Club - December 2012

“Most of us knitters have other crafts in our lives. Our needles may mingle with hooks and our yarn stashes may share space with paper stacks or fat quarters. This little sock is 100% good old knitted garter stitch, but takes a design cue from quilters. First, two “square –in-a-square” blocks are knit using mitered square and modular knitting techniques. These are seamed together to form the leg of the sock. Then, stitches are picked up from the top to knit the cuff in the round, and from the bottom to knit the heel and foot. As with quilting, the arrangement of the blocks makes a big difference in the final appearance. When the seam is aligned with the side of the sock as shown, a pinwheel motif appears that doesn’t exist in either of the individual squares.”
