Broadripple Socks

When my SP sent me some great looking Cascade Fixation I set out to find a pattern. I found the Broadripple and never looked back. I love the pattern and can’t wait to make more! One interesting note. One ball had a dramatic color change in the middle with the lighter purple becoming much lighter. The socks certainly look different as a result, but I have convinced myself I’m ok with that.

Pattern: Broadripple by Rob Matyska

Modifications: I used magic loop.

Yarn: Cascade Fixation in Purple Passion

Needles: Sz 2 Addi Turbos

What I like: Everything! They were fun to knit, they fit well, and the look cool!

What I would change: Nothing, they worked out well.

However, on our stop in Halifax I went to The Loop (more in another post on that!) and she was able to look up the pattern and let me copy down the toe decreases!! I guess these don’t officially count for Summer of Socks since I started them before summer officially started, but at the rate I knit socks there’s no way I will knit the most so I figure these count for me! Details here. […]
