The Final Stitches

The dishcloth turned out quite well
for a play time of what ifs!
It is a simple k2p2 that is offset one stitch each row to make
the purl stitches stack to the right or the left;
I changed direction every 10 rows.
36 sts on #6 needles with cotton yarn.
One KAL sock is done!
I did notice that the stitches seemed to torque
so that the stitches looked like they traveled 
around the leg.  
When I laid it flat it was fine but I had to put a marker on the front of the leg
so that I would know 'where' I was!
I did do the pattern all around the leg.
KnitPicks Koi Pond yarn, #1 needles over 64 stitches.

  1. I found the same thing with the sock too. I ended up doing a plain foot on mine.

  2. Yup, mine torqued as well. I like the effect. I'm only through 4 repeats of the pattern - up to the heel flap, but hope to work on it tonight and over the weekend. It's a fun knit.
