Bayerische socks creep forward

I’m still plugging away at the Bayerische socks.

One week ago:

This pattern is a yarn hog. The tiny ball of yarn is all I had left of the original skein after I finished the first sock (Lorna’s Lace Shepherd Sock yarn).


I screwed up one of the motifs on Chart D (the pseudo-argyle motif) and found myself laddering down 2/3 of the sock to fix it. That area looks a little “swollen” now, but washing, blocking, and wearing will even it all out.

  1. I think they look great, even if you did have to make a fix. The color of the yarn is one of my favorites.

    Someday I may be brave enough to try the pattern, I really like the way the finished socks look.

  2. My aunt gave me 2 skeins of Lorna’s Laces Shepard’s Sock for Christmas (Baltic Sea colorway) because she knew I have not yet tried knitting with Lorna’s Laces yet. I think I am now inspired to knit the Bayerische socks based on your photos (which colorway are you using), but it will have to wait until after the New Year since I have started my holiday knitting. Thanks for the tip on the amount of yarn the pattern uses.

  3. I thought it might be a yarn hog, after all isn’t it something like 100 stitches for a medium women’s sock?

    But it is totally gorgeous! Nice work, and I’m impressed by your completely invisible fix.

  4. Nice save. They are looking beautiful. I’m not surprised by the yarn hoggishness. Lots going on there with twisteds and travellers.

  5. Gorgeous. I have a love/hate relationship with Bavarian twisted stitch. Love how it looks, hate to knit it. Will definitely make these sometime.

  6. You’re lucky you had as much left over as you did. On my first Bayerische, I had 29 inches of yarn left when I finished grafting toe. I’m very nervous about sock number two.

  7. They are beautiful! I love that pattern and had planned to start it this week before common sense kicked in and reminded me that it is a pattern best knit with no children around. *Sigh*

    Have fun knitting them, hopefully they’ll get a lot of use.

  8. Looking good. I’ve found that this pattern is very forgiving when mistakes are fixed. I can’t really see them when I make them on mine.
