What Am I Up To This Fiber Arts Friday?: Dödergök's Mitered Socks

Dödergök's Mitered Socks are my next attempt at a pair of knit socks. Unlike my Lounge Socks which were knit with a worsted 10 ply, this pattern uses 4 ply sock yarn. I'm looking forward to producing a lighter sock.

Have a quick look on Dödergök's blog to see these funky socks. Yes, she is Swedish and has many beautiful creations on her blog. This sock pattern she translated into English.


The cuff is knit in twisted ribbing. According to Dödergök, they have an "unusual toe and heel". The heel seems to be done like an after thought mitten thumb. Does that make sense?

That's all fiberistas! Visit all of the other fiber bloggers taking part in Fiber Arts Friday over at Wisdom Begins in Wonder.

Happy FAF!

I love following patterns written by people in other countries. It's very cool to see how they get things done!

Have fun knitting!

I love the yarn...sock knitting still eludes me but one day when I'm knitting socks I'll re-read this post and have an idea what you are talking about. I haven't knit mittens either...I know, there's a whole world of knitting I've yet to experience.

Nice! They look a lot like Jaywalkers, which are the most comfortable socks I've ever knit!

On to your second pair of socks already? Woo Hoo!

I love the yarn and what an interesting pattern. I will have to think about doing this one.

I love this yarn and the pattern seems like it will be an adventure. I enjoy working on translated patterns to see the differences - I'm working on the Fiona All Grown-Up top and there have definitely been a few things lost in translation so far!

That's beautiful yarn. Can't wait to see what the mitre's look like.

Good luck with your socks! I'm kind of afraid of translated patterns.

I love twisted rib for socks. It's so crisp!
