You can see why I’m calling these “Jeans Socks” — the colours match well with jeans!
This is a pretty generic toe-up sock, but I broke out of my feather-and-fan mold and tried a Barbara Walker stitch pattern (Wicker Work, Second Treasury). Unfortunately, I made a mistake in transcribing the pattern from Barbara Walker’s words to a chart, and I was well underway in knitting before discovering the mistake. The result looked reasonably okay, anyhow. So, I’m calling it “barley sheaves” 😉
