FO Friday: Chittery Chattery Socks

Chittery Chattery Socks in Louet GEMS Sport!
Since I don't have any FO's to share today (gasp!), I thought this would be a good day to introduce my next sock design from Conversation Socks!

The Chittery Chattery Socks are knit with Louet GEMS Sport, and while they look like they’d involve a lot of fancy footwork (or rather, colorwork), but they are actually quite simple! Single-round stripes and an easy-to-memorize stitch pattern are all you need to put your best foot forward. Be prepared to get a lot of questions about these socks, because they were very popular at my knitting group!

While the stitch pattern is simple (all you need to know is how to knit and purl), what makes these socks special is the exquisite and hard-wearing yarn I chose especially for this design, Louet GEMS Sport yarn. The tight spin of the yarn not only prevents pills, but it provides for crisp color definition within the design. Plus, it comes in a variety of wearable colors so that you can dream up your own unique color combinations to suit the whole family.

If you're just joining me, here's the deal: all 5 designs are written for sport weight yarn on US #3 needles; each pattern was created with the express purpose of being simple enough for knitting on-the-go, but interesting enough to keep you engaged. These patterns are perfect for your morning commute, knit night, or a trip out of town! They don't require huge, hard-to-follow charts or incredibly complicated techniques. Instead, they take the basic building blocks that the average knitter has at their disposal to create five designs the whole family will love. 

Your feet will look so fancy!

I'm giving everyone a chance to pre-order ALL FIVE sock designs for the low price of just $12.50. I'll be releasing the remaining two patterns as editing and layout is complete, and each time that I do, the pre-order price will increase until the final pattern is released. The full collection will then be for sale for the full price of $18.

You will receive the Chittery Chattery Socks pattern pictured above plus 2 more great designs for immediate download AND automatic updates for each subsequent pattern as they are published.
