Robyn Gallimore

for Red Bird Knits   2011


Gallimore: "Byzantium sports 6 different motifs from old Anatolian sock patterns and is knitted in the beautiful colours of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in Bittersweet-- set off by a framework of solid black.

"Not hard! Stitch markers will help and you are only knitting with 2 colours and knitting 1 stitch at a time after all....

"A favourite faux fair isle using the favoured motifs from Anatolia, Byzantium joins Istanbul, Antioch, Anatoli and Filigree-- all of which are also based on Anatolian motifs."

Cuff down

(Second gauge on this beauty is stretched slightly to fit the foot-- Ed.)
