Anastasia socks

Anastasia socks

A very fun, fast knit. I really like these kinds of patterns that allow you to have the fun of variegated yarn, aren't as boring as stockinette, but not so intricate that the yarn and pattern compete.

Pattern is a free download from Pepperknit. Thanks for the fun pattern, Minty!

Specs and modifications:
LL Shepard sock, in Glenwood
56 stitches
2.5 mm inox, magic loop
PGR's short row toe, using needle cable for provisional cast-on using Knitty's Magic Cast-on
toe-up round heel, modified from Knitty's Widdershins (possibly my new favorite heel)
1 x 1 rib, to finish with EZ's sewn bindoff (much less of a pain in the butt than the grafted bindoff, and looks almost as good)

Wow, these socks are absolutely gorgeous, you did such a fantastic job with them! I so love the colorline you've been using, and wow, that pattern rocks big time! Thanks for sharing the link, I'll have to print this out and try my hands at it too right away!
