Ravelry gallery: Walking the Primrose Path

We’re revisiting a pattern lots of our readers have knitted on Ravelry, the Primrose Path socks, to see what they loved about the knit! 

Ravelry user: MrsQueen

Yarn: Regia Hand-dye Effect

How did you pick the yarn you were going to use?

I chose the yarn because I happened to have it at home/in my stash. It was a bargain buy from a local shop. I love the autumnal colours and looked forward to being snuggled up on the sofa with cozy socks once the cooler weather arrived.

 

What were the best bits and the most tricky about the pattern?

Best bit about the pattern, it was easy to remember. No need to keep referring back to instructions and a mindless knit which I was looking for at the time but it wasn’t so plain it got boring.

I didn’t find the pattern tricky but didn’t particularly like the toe shaping. It was very pointy so I changed that slightly to fit my preference.

Yarn: Regia Flusi Das Socken Monster

How did you pick the yarn you were going to use?

I picked the yarn for its colour, love bright colours and the sock yarn strength.

 

What were the best bits and the most tricky about the pattern?

I loved this pattern, it was different from other socks. I liked the fact that the actual sock was easy to knit, good for tv knitting. The tricky bit was the little flower, as I had never knitted a flower before and the fact that adding the flower was something different.
Sewing in beads is always a bonus giving the sock a bit of bling, making the socks so quirky. Love them.

How did I pick the yarn I was going to choose?

I’ve got the yarn first and then I was looking for a sock pattern.
I wanted something simple and it would show off the self-patterning yarn.

 

What were the best bits and the most tricky about the pattern?

The pattern wasn’t difficult at all. It was tricky to get the colours to match on both socks
