As mentioned in previous posts, the Stitched in Sweden podcast is one of my favorites and I tune in religiously. Maria's projects are always gorgeous, her yarn selections drool-worthy, and her advice well worth a listen.
Plus, she has great taste in knitting patterns. I've recently started referring to her as my "spirit enabler" because I favorite pretty much every project or pattern she mentions, one of which was her Crenate socks. In one of her latest episodes, she mentioned how she'd had so much fun knitting them that she'd started another pair, so I had to venture on over to Ravelry and check out the pattern for myself.
Designed by Rachel Coopey of Coop Knits, these leafy lace socks are perfect for solid or speckled yarns (my new obsession) that show off the simple-yet-exquisite stitch definition. The pattern, which is fully charted, is super easy to follow once you understand what's going on and would be a great introductory project for a new-to-charting knitter.
