FO - Skew Socks

Last night, I finished another pair of socks. Can you tell I’m loving having the summer off, even if my bank account is not. :teehee:

This pattern is called Skew. It’s free, and you can find it here.


The socks look simple enough…stockinette stitch; however, this pattern called for a bit of a unique construction.


This construction, along with the endless increases and decreases, lends to the tilted affect. It also made for interesting heels…


I really love the lines that are created by the increases/decreases…


The yarn is Cascade Heritage Paints, and the colorway is #9906. It’s the last of what I bought myself for my birthday in March. It was WONDERFUL to knit with…no splitting or anything! It was perfect for this pattern.


I knit this pattern on size 1 (2.5mm) needles, but I changed to 0’s (2.00mm) for the ribbed cuff. It took me slightly over a week, so it is a fast knit.

Here are the rest of the pictures I took…

That’s a really interesting pattern! I love the yarn and the diagonal striped effect it gives with the pattern too. Fantastic job! :cheering:
