I am unnaturally proud of the matchy matchy on these socks.
Seriously, I spent much time and effort on making these socks match up exactly. Thanks to Trekking XXL being a freaking dying machine, it was pretty easy to accomplish.
I didn’t reinvent the wheel here, just used my basic sock recipe of 60 stitches decreasing 4 stitches evenly down to the ankle, then some sort of heel and toe plan and voila! Socks. I used an afterthought heel on these so I could use the striped bit of patterning to make the heels. I have no idea what colorway this Trekking is, but I did buy it at this year’s Rhinebeck from a vendor’s sale basket. There is no trace of this phantom color on the internet, so clearly this isn’t a new or a hot colorway. I love it though and love this Trekking since these socks are indestructible. I hope to get much stripey wear from these since winter is fast approaching.
