Not Hermione’s Everyday Sock

I’m in the process of knitting another pair of socks using the same Berroco Comfort yarn.  By knitting with the two different balls of yarn at the same time, the yarn goes much farther.  Plus each 100-gram ball consists of 447 yards which is plenty for one pair of socks let alone two.

I knew I wanted to obscure the bold striping pattern again in the Beach House color and try something different from the other eight pairs I knit in the past.  I tried Hermione’s Everyday sock pattern and it’s a great pattern but there was not enough texture/mixing up for me with this yarn.

So I played with the knit and purl sequence and came up with this pattern.  It might already exist in the textured stitch world but here it is:

The subdued Hari Hari color was used for the odd rounds and Beach House for the even.  The striping sequence is still prominent but the texture adds another dimension.

I like it.

If you’ve seen or used this textured stitch and know the name of it, do tell in the comments.

  1. Great way to get more pattern with self-striping yarns! I did a similar sort of thing when I was using up some leftovers and love the results. But it never occurred to me to do this right from the start… Clever!
