Rose City Rollers

Top Down Socks_1

Fall is almost here and Leslie got the itch to knit up socks in just a couple of days.  This Rose City Rollers pattern by Mara Catherine Bryner is an easy, roll-top ankle sock project, just click here to take a look at the pattern.  These socks are knit from the top down, with a tradition heel flap and heel turn and the pattern has three size options available.  The pattern is perfect for beginner sock knitters or if  you are a more advanced knitter its a super fun knit.

RoseCityRollers_2

Use your favorite bright sock yarn to knit yourself some fun socks and get ready for the cooler weather.  We used one hank of Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks that Rock in a bright multi-color.  I’ve also seen this pattern knit in a more muted Dream in Color Smooshy with Cashmere and those were pretty fantastic as well.  If you haven’t knit top down socks before and would like to learn L & B is offering a 3 part class in August that will teach students all about how to make top down socks, just click here for more information about this class! -B
