You may recall from an earlier post that my friend, Jean, gave me some gorgeous Fleece Artist Merino sock yarn in the Wildflower colorway. Well Jean likes to fish so I designed a pair of socks for her with a fish scale lace panel down the front of the sock. I am very pleased with the outcome and Jean loves them too. You can find the fish scale lace stitch pattern in the "365 Knitting Stitches A Year" perpetual calendar. It is the May 31st stitch. I knitted a 60 stitch sock on size 2 turbo addi circulars. The stitch pattern is knitted over 17 stitches so I decreased one stitch after the 2x2 rib at the cuff on needle #1 (the front/top of the sock) so that I would have an even 6 stitches on either side of the pattern. I added the stitch back to knit the toe. Other than that the pattern is just my generic top down sock. Even so I think this means that I am a sock pattern designer now :) I like my design so much that I am going to make myself a pair too.
