King of the Mountains
One of four anklets designed in honor of the Tour de France, road cycling's premiere event. This pattern commemorates the Climber's Jersey, also known as the King of the Mountains. With hairpin turns, mountain peaks and the red polka dots worn by the fastest climber in the tour, these socks have a bit of everything. Worked from the toe up, in sizes from XS (women’s 5-6) to XL (women’s 11+, men’s 10), these anklet socks use 2 balls of Cascade Fixation and a small remnant of any red/pink fingering weight yarn for the polka dots. Stitch patterns are presented in written and charted forms.
Skills needed: provisional casting on, knitting in the round, binding off.
Gauge: 30 sts/48 rows over 4 in/10 cm in stockinette.
