Let us introduce you to another fantastic designer at the Nordic Knitting Society - Maria Gustafsson, better known as @Mariasgarn on Instagram. Check her out on Instagram for more inspiration!

"I always have a sock in progress in my handbag, sometimes I know exactly what it will be, sometimes there is a pair of finished sock feet waiting for an idea for a nice shank. I knit all my socks from the toe, a wedge for the best fit and heel with reinforced heel tab. I only design socks I want to knit and wear myself.

I am very fond of graphic patterns and squares, there are so many nice square patterns. This summer a friend of mine knitted a plaid, multi-colored sweater, we met several times and talked about the sweater as her project was a bit "messy", so when my sock feet needed shank, squares seemed just right. I remembered then that I had once seen squares created with lifting stitches instead of multicolour knitting. After quite a few tries (and many repeated shankings), I found a square that fit the sock shank of Dora.
If you don't like knitting socks from the toe, you can start by knitting the pattern on Dora's shank and then knit your favorite sock foot, top down, great right?
