Vanilla Just Needs Sprinkles

May 24, 2011

I have tried for ages to knit a plain vanilla sock. I much prefer the feel of a plain stockinette foot and for socks that are worn with boots who is going to see the cuff anyway. I do okay with them until I get to the cuff and then I get bored. My latest pattern is another case of me getting bored with a plain, vanilla sock.

Sprinkles Socks

This is what happens when you decide to add a few sprinkles to your plain vanilla sock. This lace and cable pattern is perfect for spring and summer wear. The easy-to-memorize stitch pattern makes it a great traveling sock.

Pattern is worked from toe up on circulars or dpns using a wide toes and an easy-peasy reversed gusset heel with not wrapping and not picked up stitches. It includes instructions for either Plain Vanilla foot, worked in stockinette stitch (as shown here) or the Vanilla with Sprinkles foot, with the lace pattern worked along the top of the foot.
