FO: Shur’tugal #2

Posted on

I am on track with my Super Special Six Pattern Sock Club for 2011. The first pair of socks (which is also my first ever Yarntini FO!) is done and I could not be happier with it.


This is the second time I have knitted this pattern and I love it even more, esp after hearing a lot of other knitters complain about the left twist. I mean, come on, it’s not like you have to bend over backwards to execute the stitch. Plus use your wild card FPS. I was tempted so many times to speak up in the forum but decided it was not worth it. Anyway, I love my golden honey socks, from the double long tail cast on down to the grafted toes – love love LOVE!

The heel, which reminds me of a dragon’s claws, remains my favourite part of the socks. It’s a simple 2-stitch purlwise slip but adds that extra texture to an otherwise plain stockinette heel flap. Thank you, Alice Yu for a wonderful and free pattern!

Pattern: Shur’tugal by Alice Yu (Socktopus) – did I mention it’s a free downloadable pattern?
