Item details


Inspired by my favorite quilting pattern, I designed Flying Geese socks pattern for the knitter who is also a quilter (or anyone who likes quilting patterns). The socks are worked cuff down using traditional stranded techniques. The knitting pattern contains charts for two sizes: women’s Medium and women’s Large.

The pattern lends itself to many different color combinations, from 2 colors to 8 colors. The sample socks highlight only two possibilities. Dive into your stash and see what fun colors you can find for these crazy quilt socks.

The pattern instructions are clear and easy to work with, taking all the stress out of knitting stranded colorwork socks. The pattern features detailed written instructions and complete charts for medium and large size socks.

Skills: Knitting in the round, stranded knitting with two colors, long floats, reading a chart, Kitchener stitch.
