This may come as a shock to some of you but I, as it turns out, can be very stubborn. I don’t like to follow the crowd, so when a pattern takes off, my first instinct is not to make it. Like, say, Clapotis or Fetching. Or Jaywalkers.
Sometimes, though…the more I look at a pattern, the more I realize it’s popular for a very good reason. (And sometimes not so much.) Jaywalkers? Is popular for a very good reason.
I had been working on some plain socks with some yarn, but they came apart in my purse so I decided to try something new. I started playing around with Jaywalkers and I fell–hard. The socks are adorable. The varigation in the yarn is showcased, but doesn’t overwhelmed. The socks are adorable.
I loved this pattern so much that when I realized I need to get started on a pair of socks for my Mom’s birthday, I knew there was only one pattern to use. Oh, yes, I see a lot of Jaywalking in my future.
