Boomerang Socks — A Complete Pair

After knitting two of Louise Robert‘s Boomerang socks (page 112 of New Directions in Sock Knitting), I’m tempted to say that this may become a favorite sock construction.

I absolutely love the unconventional construction that requires simple decreases and increases to shape the heel and toe. I also love how it showcases self-striping yarn. And, most importantly, I love how well they fit!

Now that I’ve completed this relatively simple pair of socks, I think I’ll challenge myself with a pair of socks that involves a slightly more difficult technique. Stay tuned!

  1. They really look cool and since you say they are not too difficult I will try them as soon as I get the chance. I have the book so I am ready to go. Nicely done as usual Ann.

  2. Lovely. And you and the book have been mentioned at MasonDixonKnitting.com. I wanted to tell them/comment that you were knitting through the book, but, I didn’t.

  3. Those are really nice! I love the way the striping yarn looks totally different. I must try socks ๐Ÿ™‚
