The first finished item of my 11 in 2011 lineup.
The yarn is from the January 2011 installment from Little Red Bicycle. The colorway is called Dagon, inspired by H.P. Lovecraft’s short stories. In fact, the three month club will entirely be based upon Lovecraft’s stories and I’m excited to see what comes up next.
The pattern, Casadh, worked up pretty quickly since there’s a lot of plain ribbing inbetween the crazy cable rows. The sock was sized for men, so I made a few modifications (only 15 repeats on the heel flap, decreased on the gusset to 18 stitches each needle) to help fit a smaller foot. The combination of the ribbing and cables gives it plenty of stretch though, so it ended up working out just fine. They’re really comfortable and I can’t wait to wear them out and show them off! There are a few more pictures on the Ravelry Link below as well as more information about my modifications.
