It’s time for another Quickie! I’m taking over for Alex this time, she’s away on some well-deserved rest 🙂
This quickie is called “There & Back Again” by designer Dawn Hansen. Beautiful socks, presenting some fun colourwork that reminds me of summer when I was a kid. Every time we had ice-cream I would order Strawberry and Chocolate, which are the colours Dawn used for her sample, a very pink Light of Love and a true chocolate with Chocolate Amargo.
In the words of the designer:
This sock pattern provides a great introduction to stranded knitting. My Mom and I shared two skeins of Malabrigo sock yarn and challenged each other to create a unique two-color design. This is when the idea for my ‘There & Back Again’ sock design was born. Try different color combinations to create your own distinctive transitions!
You can see “There & Back Again” on Ravelry or browse our past Quickies! (We’ve also got a new Quickies list in the Malabrigo Junkies group, for easy reference.). Also visit Dawn’s designer page on Ravelry.
What are Malabrigo Quickies?
Quickies are small, fast projects which require only one or two skeins of yarn. Approximately every two weeks we’ll be teaming up with a talented independent designer to present an exciting new accessory (or other “small object”) pattern, showcasing one of our many yarns and colorways.
