These were both fun to knit and fun to design. I love working with Kate Gilbert, the super talented editor of Twist Collective. She’s decisive, knows what she wants and has a flawless eye.
What I like the most about Kirkwall, is that they can be modified easily to fit many different legs. The pattern bands are each composed small 6 st repeats – just shy of an inch. So each pattern band can be modified for a perfect fit. The decreasing is done in the first plain round after a pattern band, making adjustments easy.
The yarn! I love Quince & Co, Chickadee, soft, squishy and comfy…and the colors…oh boy – almost edible they are so lovely. Pam Allen is a genius.
I’m working on a second colorway. I might just make them short socks, because I am impatient and I’m also feeling nostalgic for the days of short socks, Doc Martens and short skirts.
