Noro socks

The Noro socks are finished:

  • Yarn: Noro Kureyon Sock
  • Needles: Size 2 dpns
  • Method: Cuff to toe
  • For: Me!
  • Size: 8 foot (US) 6 (UK)

Pattern: I used a variation of my basic sock recipe, with the following modifications:
  • Size 2 needle
  • Cast on 66 stitches
  • Stitch pattern: Rows 1-3: (K2, P1) repeat to end. Row 4: (CR2, P1) repeat to end.
  • CR2 = Knit into the 2nd stitch on your left needle (and leave it on the needle), then knit into the 1st stitch on your needle. Slip both stitches off the left needle. (It's a baby cable without a fiddly cable needle)

And that's it!

LOVE them! I have some of that exact yarn in the stash and I'm tempted to run upstairs and cast on immediately. Way to go Sam!

These are beautiful! I really like that you were able to match up the colors/stripes.

Woo hoo, those are really pretty socks! I like the modification you use. Cables without the fiddly cable needle sound right up my alley!

Those are gorgeous!
I wasn't sure I'd like how that yarn knit up but your socks have certainly changed my mind :)

Very pretty. I have yet to knit with Noro - it's only a matter of time ;)

Those look great! I love how well the colors line up :)

I love your photographs of these! I still can't believe how well you managed to match them when it's so notoriously difficult.

Very nice! I love how they turned out. Did this yarn have all the knots like kureon always seems to? Bravo on getting them to match so exactly.
