As you might have guessed, these socks were inspired by a recent TV show of the same name. I wasn’t planning to knit chess related socks but it sort of happened and I even gave chess a go (unsuccessfully I might add) but at least I have these socks to brag about! ‘The Queen’s Gambit’ Socks are knitted in the round using ‘Stranded Colourwork’ technique. Each sock is knitted from sock leg cuff to toe in four parts: sock leg, sock heel, sock foot and sock toe. We start with an Italian Cast-On in the round and then a Rib Stitch, gently proceeding to ‘Chess Board Chart Pattern’. We continue with a ‘Boomerang Heel’ and foot, finishing with toe decreases. The pattern reflects an average sized adult foot but I have included thorough recommendations on size adjustments. I hope you enjoy this project!
