OK, friends, in a month where the socks are flying, we bring you a new technique and a new pattern that will take you to new heights.
Flying Wallenda heights, actually.
Watch! As Jen Arnall-Culliford takes us on a trip across the high wire of knitting intarsia colorwork in the round.
Lean in! As Jen calmly explains how sometimes you want to add a motif to your knitting in the round, without having to strand all the way around the round.
Gasp! As she does a thing with a yarnover that you may not believe.
Swoon! As she works flat on a sock that is knitted in the round.
Nod! As you finally see what the heck she’s doing.
I am pretty sure you have never seen anything like this.
Ready for it? Heartgyle Socks.
For those of us who are cheerfully working toward our first socks, this is the sort of next-level socking that we can aspire to. And it’s straight-up fun to see how a technique like this works.
