Iris Sibirica JayWalker

Re-Started: 17th June 2007

Finished: 30th June 2007

Yarn: Rohrspatz & Wollmeise superwash sockyarn, colourway "Iris Sibirica"

Needle: 2.5 mm/ US #1 Addi Turbos circs

Pattern: JayWalker by Grumperina on MagKnits

Modification: I'm doing this using the toe-up version modified by Natalia Knits and I'm also using the Magic Cast-On instead of the provisional cast-on suggested

Modification 2: I did the heel-flap myself. Didn't use the heel flap in the pattern...and it's also Eye of Partridge

 

Honestly, I'm extremely proud of this pair of JayWalkers. They fit me perfectly. I had been kinda put off from JayWalkers after so many problems with the top-down pattern (too tight, too loose, too long). I had some problems with the toe-up version, too....but I made it in the end and I absolutely LOVE it!

 

There will surely be more toe-up JayWalkers to come!

 

This one made it to EXPLORE
