From the day I first saw the amazing textured color patterns of the Bohuslan Collective of Sweden, I was entranced. Simple color repeats that utilize both knit and purl stitches give color patterns a glowing, beaded quality while being suprisingly easy to work. This sock is a nod to my Scandinavian roots and my passion for the incredible knitting styles that originated in that part of the world.
