Coriolis of Caterpillar
My second start from New Pathways. I'm using Opal Rainforest Caterpillar (Raupe) for this one. I love the firm texture of this yarn. It doesn't split as I poke into it and after washing it is very soft and the fit gives a little. I find this pattern easy and relaxing to do, with just a little to think about as I work the band each row. The band does make it a little hard to pull over the heel to put on, but once on, all is well. Plenty of errors made this take a little longer. I made one foot too long and decided to knit a new toe after pulling out the excess. Also, I took the height down to just above the ankle and finished with a few rows of garter stitch and a tubular bind-off.
