Notes

I’ll do 8 repeats of woven pattern. This pattern isn’t organized very well. Makes it a bit hard to work with. :/ Love the yarn! I’m doing 2 at a time. The sock from inside the cake is pinker than the outer sock, but both are awesome. :D

The more I think about it, the more I think the two different-colored socks are intentional. I think she dyed them with 3-D glasses in mind. I’ll have to ask her next time I see her. :)

This pattern is a pain. I can’t quite put my finger on why. It’s not written like any pattern I’ve ever knit before and some of the directions are slightly off or backwards from how I normally knit socks. The chart is hard to read and figure out. And it’s 5 pages long without any pictures! I like brief patterns unless they are picture-laden. In any case, I have followed the directions somewhat begrudgingly and now have two really pretty socks.
