In the past, when I crocheted, I never really created something that I need to follow a pattern. I have always crocheted 'granny squares' to make a simply blanket, or a few simply dc to create a scarf.
Following a specific pattern can be challenging, there is a lot of counting involved and variation of stitches.
Here's what I have done so far...The multicolor sock was a test sock. I wanted to see how the pattern would turn out. I used as yarn that I had laying around. It was actually made from a cotton yard. I had to use a different colour for the heel ( I ran out of the original yarn)
Here's my first attempt at the full pattern. They are knee- high boot socks. Not bad. I used a thick wool yard in silver. I will definitely attempt this pattern again. The first sock turned out a bit looser than the second and so I need to work on the fit of the socks for the next time.
Mini Me wanted a pair too so here is what we created. She made a special request, that the heel be made in black.
