Mickey Mouse Fair Isle Sock Pattern & Chart
It's definitely been a cold winter for most of us so far. And I for one, like to battle that cold with hot tea, a warm fire and a toasty pair of warm wool socks, handmade socks if I can get them. In fact, sock knitting is one of my obsessions (when I don't have tiny people pulling on my yarn). I love a small project that I can take on the road. And these sweet socks were started on our last Disney vacation! The perfect sort of knitting for that road trip.
This is my original pattern and chart, available for personal use only. You can download a copy of my Mickey Mouse Sock Pattern if you'd like one. Fair warning though, I wrote the pattern for my own personal reference and I am the only one who has knit from it. It has not been "tested" so to speak and the details for kitting up the toe and several other small details seem to be off, but honestly, I don't have time to figure it out. Knit at your own risk!
It's a simple fair isle pattern and I like how the pattern is only at the top of the sock, so your toes don't have to battle the strings when you slip your foot into the rest of the sock. For those interested parties, I used Knit Pick's stroll in Barn and Black to complete this project. I'm hoping these little warm fuzzies will get me through to seed ordering time, when Spring becomes a reality and life abundant is not too far away.
Until next time, may all your days be filled with fairy dust!
