I am having so much fun knitting socks this unique way for the first time. The pattern is so well-written! I will definitely be trying out more of the patterns!
Liked the design concept with changing how you increase stitches, but found the directions for shifting stitches for the leg and foot confusing. Took several attempts before I could adapt. Have been knitting for 50 years.
I'm a toe-up sock knitter so the pattern looked intriguing. I haven’t started the project yet, however the pattern looks fun. I hope I can get it done.
Interesting construction is what attracted me. I usually do 2 at a time , toe up, I was able to do the heels TAAT until joining in the round for the foot/leg. I did a few rows after joining and it was too tight to get on. I ripped back and added more increases and it was ok. I have since decided not to continue with this project, as it just doesn’t suit my knitting style.
