FO Friday: Dragonfly Socks


Pattern: Dragonfly Socks

Yarn: Candy Skein Yummy Fingering
Colourway: Candy Skein's First Birthday

Modifications: I added two stitches and two rows to each repeat to bring the primary stitch count to 68 sts. These socks were knit on size 0 (2mm) needles. I knit two extra repeats on each leg to make them a bit longer. There was still enough yarn to do more, but there wouldn't have been enough stretch at the cuff to wear them any higher on my calf.

Comments: Very simple and effective pattern. Simple enough to memorize the pattern and knit on the go without bringing the pattern along. The yarn is lovely subtle mix of shades of robins egg blue, cyan, teal and green. It's a very smooth yarn that shows the stitch definition well, not at all splitty and with a nice squishy-ness. Very nice to knit.

Thanks for taking the time to have a look at my Finished Object Friday. To see more finished objects, check out the links at Tami's Amis. And have a great weekend everyone!

I love those socks, and the fact that it is a free, easy pattern. BTW, I can't find this pattern in Ravelry. Could there really be a pattern they haven't captured?!

These are really striking. I love the colorway and it is good to hear that the pattern wasn't overly complicated. I'm trying to knit socks during the Ravellenic Games, and I'm hoping all the socks you make will help convince me that I can knit some, too :).

These socks are great! I love how that color yarn shows off the pattern too. Sometimes the pattern gets lost in the yarn.
