Hey all. I’ve put aside my botched sock yarn project and pulled out something more my size, but I need pattern suggestions.
It’s the most loverliest purple yarn, a blend of merino wool and silk It has a rather nice sheen to it. While making a swatch, I noticed that garter stitches show off the sheen much better than stockinette.
Any suggestions on a sock pattern that features purl or garter? I guess I could just take a standard pattern and wear them inside out, but that just seems, well, ick. If it matters, it’s a very light worsted (maybe a DK?) and I plan on using size 2 needles which lands at 7 stitches/inch. I could probably adapt a pattern to match my yarn/gauge, though.
(Note: I’ve seen the sideways garter stitch knee-highs, but that’s not quite what I’m looking for.)
