Bayerische socks

I must admit, I am inordinately proud of these socks! The patterns are Bavarian motifs and I absolutely love them! They took me a long time to finish, but that was partly because I wasn’t knitting much during the latter part of last year.






My knitting notes are on Ravelry for any of you who are interested: http://ravel.me/camytang/bs

  1. Yummy socks. Heading off to Ravelry to see about this. I have two skeins of yarn left over from another project--might just work!

    1. That's cool! Just be aware that this pattern completely sucked up yarn. I had two whole skeins of Stroll (100g total) and it was just barely enough after I had to alter the pattern a bit. I'm making another pair of Bavarian socks now, and I made sure to get 200g of Stroll. It's probably overkill, but I didn't want to run out of yarn!

  2. You did a great job and I like the color. I haven't tried to make socks yet. I'm kind of nervous about using double pointed needles. It looks so complex.

    1. Thanks, Melody! I actually didn't use double-pointed needles for the second sock, I used a 32" circular needle instead, and it was a lot easier. I find double points a bit fiddly and I always get ladders.

    1. Thanks Susan! I'm so glad I got to try out this pattern. I've wanted to make these socks since I first saw the pattern online years ago.
