Tickle Your Tofutsies
Using my #3 son as a foot model, I present to you my first Tofutsie socks. Done on US 1 needles, using the free Tidal Wave pattern from the SWTC yarn website. I did make one alteration.........Thanks to BeckyB at my LYS (and new Ravelry bud) who just mentioned in passing that it would be so cool if the second sock would spiral in the opposite direction........So I did. I cannot ignore a comment like that!
So not being able to install a chart here; offer my alteration to the pattern in words.
8 stitch repeat, 12 row pattern - all even numbered rounds are plain knit. Between * and * is one repeat of the pattern.
Row 1 - *knit 5, k2tog, yo, knit 1*
Row 3 - *knit 4, k2tog, knit 1, yo, knit one*
Row 5 - *knit 3, k2tog, knit 2, yo, knit one*
Row 7 - *knit 2, k2tog, knit 3, yo, knit one*
Row 9 - *knit 1, k2tog, knit 4, yo, knit one*
Row 11 - *k2tog, knit 5, yo, knit one*
Haven't test worn the socks, but the look is amazing. Tofutsies is my weapon of choice in Sock Wars III - so I liked the practice I got working with this yarn. I still think it would make an awesome lace shawl.
