A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be chosen by the lovely Madeline of The Little Mount Yarn Co. to test knit her new sock pattern. It is a fantastic pattern and super easy – perfect for knitting whilst watching festive movies. Madeline published the pattern last weekend and you can get it on Ravelry. The Evergreen Socks were top of the Whats Hot list on Ravelry within 48 hours of being published, and everyone seems to be loving them.
I used 2.5mm DPNs and about 1.4 balls (320 yards) of Adriafil Classic Azzurra in a lovely festive green (colourway 035) – Madeline had already used a semi-solid colourway for her test knit, so I used a solid to highlight the stitch pattern of the tree.
These would be perfect for anyone who has already completed vanilla socks and wanted to try something a little different, or for someone who has never knit socks before and wants to give themselves an added challenge. There are no complicated stitches, and the pattern caters for two sizes (medium and large) and the medium size is perfect for most women – with a cast on of 64 stitches.
These will certainly be keeping my feet warm this winter. What are you currently knitting?
