Karate Kid Syncopation Socks

I may have mentioned in my last post how much I đź’•đź’ť these socks. It is my favorite all-time pair of socks that I’ve knit so far!

The Syncopation pattern is toe-up but I prefer to knit top-down. The textured pattern works quite well either way. I’ve used this particular pattern three times, toe-up once and top-down twice.

My Karate Kid grandson dyed the yarn in June and I overdyed it in August for a deeper, richer green and blue colorway. Some of the original light green is still visible in spots which gives the yarn such depth.

I knit these in nine days, quick for me, as I was under self-imposed pressure to get these in the mail before Christmas.

And to add a surprise…

..red toes! That will make it easier (I hope) to lengthen and/or repair in the future.

My focus has turned away from knitting socks for a while but I do have some other projects to share later.

Mr. Aitch and I do wish you a very Merry and Blessed Christmas. 🎄
