Triangulation socks

designed by Riin Gill

A sock pattern in three sizes, using Happy Fuzzy Yarn Corrie Sock (hand dyed fingering weight sock yarn) and size 1 needles, it uses modular knitting and a little bit of sewing but not much (I avoid seams at all costs, so believe me, the sewing is kept to the absolute minimum). Includes detailed step by step instructions and a chart.

Yarn: Corrie Sock

Starry Night Socks

designed by Riin Gill

One of my favorite paintings is Vincent van Gogh’s Starry Night. I thought it would be fun to interpret it in sock form. The socks don’t really look at all like the painting, but they still remind me of it.

You will need to pay attention to the chart while you’re knitting these; it’s not a pattern you can memorize. There are some long stretches between colors, and you need to catch the floats loosely so the socks still stretch.
