Widdershins FO


Widdershins

I love my Tofutsie Widdershins. I knit these to fit, and kept thinking, “My, what enormous socks!” And thought I got my gauge wrong, and thought I’d miscalculated, and thought they would only fit a platypus. Then I tried them on. And they fit like, not a glove, but a well-fitting sock. Funny. The Tofutsie yarn is lovely and tweedy, but also has this very subtle tiger stripe to it. Can’t tell the colorway from the ballband, but lots of pinks.

Used the knit-off cast-off recommended for toe-up socks by Wendy. You knit two stitches in pattern, slip them to the left needle, then knit them together tbl. Knit another stitch in pattern, slip the two stitches from the right to the left needle, and knit tog tbl. Etc., all the way around. Very nice and stretchy and pretty for these two by two rib socks.
