The Fun Runs Now Through July 21st!

Hit a Home Run with this fun slipped-stitch sock pattern!  Join us for some fun, and you might even win a prize! 

Description:  Play Ball!  Impress all your friends and loved ones with this pair that looks WAY more difficult to make than it actually is.  Create beautiful colorwork diamonds carrying only one color at a time  - no bobbins to untangle or floats to worry about.   Combine any two colors - the more contrast the better.  Use sports team colors to really knock this pattern out of the park!  This toe-up design features a Fleegle Heel and is presented in text and charts for your knitting fun!  The pattern contains instructions in text and charts, and, as always, there is video support to help you with techniques that might be new to you.  The pattern is written for three sizes:

  • Narrow Width:  6.0 - 7.5 inch circumference at ball of foot
  • Medium Width:  7.5 - 9.5 inch circumference at ball of foot
  • Wide Width:  9.5 - 11 inch circumference at ball of foot
  • And foot length is determined by the knitter.

No yarn purchase is required to participate in the KAL, but two-color kits are available for $25 in your choice of 32 colors by scrolling below. Or, if you prefer to visit your stash, you can download the pattern to your Ravelry library.
