If you recall from my last blog post, I decided to enter the Designer Biathlon event. The idea is to design and publish a pattern from scratch within the 17 days of the Winter Olympic Games.
Here is Hannah, a sock designed especially for little girls:
I've gotta say, this was a challenge. And while I have a rough draft done, there are still a couple issues that require tweaking.
I don't want to give too much away about this pattern, but here are a few more pictures....
And the detail I'm most proud of?
Hidden under the foldover cuff is just enough ribbing to help hold everything up.
I'm working on a second sample now with a white cuff and pink foot. I'm convinced that these will look absolutely precious with a different color for the cuff.
The pattern will be available soon in toddler, girl, and women's sizes if all goes according to plan. Email me if you'd like to be notified when this pattern is available for purchase.
