Outlander Argyle Sock
Jamie Fraser, in the Outlander series, knit socks. It’s a safe bet that lots of sock knitting was happening in 18th century Scotland. When I saw the Outlander yarn from Bijou Basin Ranch, I knew that this yarn needed to be made into Argyle socks.
Outlander is a traditional Argyle sock pattern, which is knit flat over the intarsia portions, as characters in the Outlander series would have knit them. Straight needles are recommended, to help keep your yarn supplies tangle-free.
