Clever Design

The yarn I was using wasn't a tight twist, so it didn't work well with Stitch Surfer. But I love the pattern and will try again with a more appropriate yarn.

Fun sock pattern

I haven’t done intarsia in the round before but this pattern made it easy to learn and quite fun to knit. Held my interest long enough to avoid second sock syndrome and to even make me want to knit more! Fantastic way to use up half balls of yarn and wildly variegated or striped yarns. ❤️

Great pattern of you're a toe up fan

After an aborted start, I got into the swing of this pattern which is easy once it clicks. I love the finished product but am still not a fan of toe up sock knitting. It would be five star if it were modified for cuff down
