Globetrotter Socks by Schibot Garne - a knitting pattern for a pair of socks, in German and English.
ABOUT THIS PATTERN:
Socks with an easy to memorize texture pattern. This design works as well for men as for women.
For my version I used our Soft Socks in the colourways Globetrotter and Finsternis for the heel - hence the name.
This pattern has instructions for three different sizes: S (EU size 34-37), M (EU size 38-41) and L (EU 42-45). You can use DPNs or the magic loop method or 9'' circular needles to knit this pair of socks.
The socks are worked cuff down, in the round and the pattern will lead you through all parts of the sock. It explains you how to knit the heel and toe in detail.
The heel is not like the typical boomerang heel because the heel is worked in a contrasting colour and we do not want to have this colour on top of the sock. The pattern explains you very detailed how to knit this heel and there is a little trick how to prevent holes.
The pattern has seven pages - don't get discouraged by it. It is always very important to me that my patterns explain you everything very detailed and that you have the opportunity to tick off the steps you have already finsihed. The patterns gives you written instructions and contains a chart for texture pattern.
