Project

May 2019 KAL Line Drawing Socks with The Chilly Dog

Line Drawing Socks - featuring Zitron Art Deco yarn

Line Drawing Socks is a top down sock with an afterthought heel
and 4 Point, or 4 Corner, shaping at the toe and heel. (Psst... that means no Kitchener stitch.)

We'll be making our socks with Zitron Art Deco yarn. It's self-patterning, so the colorwork magically emerges as you knit.

Ellen will be demonstrating the skills on her bamboo addi FlexiFlip needles, but the pattern is written in needle neutral terms, so if you are already a sock knitter you can use your favorite addi double pointed needles (dpns) or circular needles.
