Swing Left socks | PDF pattern + Ravelry code

"If something needs fixing, lace up your shoes and do some organizing." That’s what President Obama said, and that’s what we’re doing here at Little Skein.

We believe in kindness, lending a helping hand, and equality for all. If you believe as we do, please join us.

I partnered with designer Megan Williams to bring to life a sock design that could become an emblem of this idea: To stand up and be visible, and to encourage everyone who shares these positive values to vote left in the mid-term elections.

These beautiful Swing Left socks are the result.

  • They can be knit toe-up or cuff-down.

  • They have a vibrant left-swinging motif on the front of the sock, with a plain stockinette panel on the back for speedy knitting.

  • They feature a slipped stitch heel and gusset, which a majority of knitters find to be the best-fitting style.

  • They are well within the skill level of a beginning sock knitter and entertaining enough for more experienced sock knitters.

These socks are for everyone who shares the vision of a more perfect union. Soothe your worries by knitting some socks and take action by Swinging Left in the upcoming election.

I am so in love with the swing left color way and coordinating mini skein! I'm a new sock knitter so it'll take me forever to finish these, but the quality of the yarn and rich colors are amazing.
