Crochet socks - Baseline socks
This pair is my second pair for the Sock CAL. You can read about the first pair and about the sockalong from my previous post.
I had chosen this pattern in the beginning of the sockalong. The pattern, Baseline Socks is by Deanne Ramsey from Addydae Designs. The pattern is amazing, I just love it!!
The yarn is from John Arbon Textiles, Knit by Numbers 4ply. I don´t think I can find words to describe this yarn. It´s something that I have never before crocheted with. It´s super soft and beautiful. I bought it from Yarndale. Now I wish that I had bought more.
I started to crochet with a 2.5 mm hook all the way to the heel. Then I changed to 3.5 mm. Also few rows of the leg part is made with 3.5 mm. Then I changed to back 2.5 mm. The pattern stated that the leg part should be 10 cm long. I made it shorter. Only 5,5 cm. For the cuff I again changed the hook to 3.5 mm and made three rows.
These socks were easy to make, easier that I thought. I really really love this color combo and the front post double stitch in the front of the sock. It´s so soft and warm. There is no question about it, these Baseline socks are going to be my favorite socks.
