Mirkwood Clue 2

Mirkwood Clue 2 

A knit-a-long to commemorate the ending of the J.R. Tolkien movies.

“for not all who wander are lost” …………

………… the dwarves and Bilbo wandered through the erie forest of  MIRKWOOD

THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG

Just as Bilbo discovered adventures along his journey so I will release clues for this sock weekly throughout the month of February.  I hope you enjoy the pattern and the adventure!

If you haven’t already done so, place markers on either side of the cable pattern.  This will make it easier to soar through the pattern.

Right LEG

Continuing with the cable pattern, knit two more repeats of the LEG PATTERN.  At this point you may find it easier to just work from the chart since all other stitches are in stockinette.

Work rnds 1-18 of LEG PATTERN as follows TWICE:

RND 1:  K2, p2, k6, p2, knit to end of rnd.

RND 2:  K2, p2, k6, p2, knit to end of rnd.
