This pattern came from the 2008 Pattern a Day Calendar. The Ravelry link is here.
I used 110g of Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sport. The color is Georgetown.
This was a super-easy pattern, and it went quickly when I settled down to work on it. It only took me awhile because of various other life obligations. Too bad I can’t be a full-time knitter!
I knit these using two circs (size 1 1/2) – my favorite method.
I completed ten pattern repeats for the legs and ten more for the feet (everything from the heel down).
I adjusted the decreasing on the toes – a first for me that I think worked out nicely since my feet are certainly not narrow. I alternated decreases w/ss until I reached 32 total stitches (16 on each needle). Then I completed two more decrease rounds without the even rounds in between to get me to a total of 24 stitches (12 on each needle). I kitchenered off. Voila! No more pointy toes!
I managed to get my daughter to take a couple of pictures against the background of her room. The green wall makes for lovely photos, if I say so myself!
Here’s a close-up…notice the Eye of Partridge heel…so pretty and a nice alternative to the slip stitch heel. Directions to make the heel can be found here.
Here’s the yarn before it was knit up…
As always, thanks for looking!!!
