So it would seem this blog has become a place to post my knitting designs :), which is ok with me. I bought some lovely Spud & Chloe Fine at the FABULOUS Fibre Space in Alexandria, VA, with plans to make striped socks. When I saw the Yarn Harlot's pattern Tiptoe Through the Tulips, I knew I had to try some intarsia!
I love how they came out so, so much! And a bunch of people on Rav liked them too, so I wrote up the pattern. The full pattern is available as a free pdf download here: Download Love Socks, but if you're already familiar with a basic cuff down, heel flap sock, then all you need is the chart!
I CO 60 sts and work stripes every 4 rows. In the first row of the heel flap, inc 1 in the center (31 sts) so the heart will be centered and then decrease it back down on the last row before the heel turn. They are easily customized... just add plain stitches to either side of the heart.
