Craft & Design

Really great Tron socks! Chris Wass designed a chart to use in the knitting pattern, too.

Originally designed to be a gift for my big brother, whose TRON fandom and enthusiasm over the release of a second movie inspired the sock design. The pattern is written for toe-up socks, with instructions for the Turkish cast-on and two-at-a-time magic loop after the chart pages. Working the foot of the sock is quick, solid knit work with a few contrast stripes. The excitement comes in with the fair-isle stranded color work around the ankle. To get a mirrored pair with a wrap-around design, you’ll need to be able to read the cart both forwards and backwards.
