GO-TO PATTERNS: Dragonfly Socks

This year I wanted to add more content to the site. Among book reviews, guides, & the Mish Mash KCAL I thought I’d add my Go-to Patterns. These are patterns I have used more then 3 times. I plan to only put 1 pattern per post. Which will include a link to the Ravelry pattern page (if possible), a link to the designer page on Raverly (if possible), and why I use the pattern repeatedly.


Dragonfly Socks by Jocelyn Sertich (Cavyshops)

I first used this pattern in 2012 for the Nerd Wars group I was in at the time. They where my first ‘non-vanilla’ socks. First time I used yarn overs & decreases. First time I used the after thought heel. You can see my 1st time using this pattern at: https://www.ravelry.com/projects/jessika/dragonfly-socks I have made socks using this pattern at least 13 times since 2012. I have made Hev & Grace at least 1 pair each using this pattern. I have also made my Mom a pair of socks using this pattern. I have used this pattern on toe up socks too – the pattern is just as nice ‘up-side down’. This pattern is easy to memorize and get in the groove of knitting. Before you know it you are ready to do the heel and/or toe. The pattern is 10 rows & 15 stitches. The photo I have used for this post You can see I even did the pattern for the heel flap. It’s easy to do as the pattern is the right side & the plain knit rows turn into purl stitches for the wrong side. I absolutely love this pattern! I would recommend this pattern to those who are looking to do more then vanilla socks.

PATTERN TESTERS NEEDED

I need pattern testers for the Mish mash squares I will be offering. If you are interested please reply to this post or reply on my ravelry group at https://www.ravelry.com/discuss/crochetjessica/topics/3747468

Why Do I Need Testers?
For the past few years I have been relying on Hev & Grace for testing my patterns. Since they are going to be participating in the KCAL I thought I would ask others to test and let them do the crochet part as it is posted.
