Smokey Zickzacks

1:42 PM

Smokey Zickzacks by Natalia Vasilieva have a very interesting construction. The socks are knitted flat in a chevron pattern and then grafted together to form a sock. This is a pattern that will keep you interested, and it's truly amazing how everything adds up in the end and all those different sized chevrons suddenly form toes, heel, and the whole sock.

Pattern: Smokey Zickzacks by Natalia Vasilieva
Yarn: Novita 7 Veljestä Polkka, 111 grams
Needles: 3,5 mm (US 4)

The pattern is written for fingering weight yarn, but I had some aran weight sock yarn in my stash, so I simply knitted with the instructions for the smallest size and got a medium-size result.

The pattern begins with a provisional cast-on after which the chevrons are formed with increases and decreases. Another provisional cast-on is used for the heel stitches. Finally, the cast-on edge is grafted together with the live stitches. This way, there is no seam. You do have to enjoy grafting with this pattern, though!

  1. Nää on niin hauskan näköiset! Sopii hyvin kirjavalle langalle. :)

    1. Oli myös hauskat neuloa! Kyllä tämä raidallisen tai muuten kirjavan langan vaatii, että hienot siksakit erottuu edukseen.

    1. No kyllä! Hauskin vaihe on kun on ommellut sen kasaan ja yht'äkkiä epämääräisestä läpyskästä onkin tullut sukka :D

  3. I don't do socks, usually, but I might try these just because of the truly interesting construction! Thanks for showing them!

    1. Sorry for missing your comment until now! I'm not a big fan of sock knitting either, but this pair was fun to knit. You should give it a try!
