FruitLoop Jawalkers Completed!

Pattern: Jaywalker! Need I say more?
Started: 1/10/06
Finished: 2/14/06
Yarn: Opal that I got from an ebay seller I think from the Netherlands.
Needles: CP size 1
Pattern Modifications: I started these with the larger cast on but realized they would be too big so I decreased down to the smaller size and I like the way the cuff is actually tapered.

I'm really pleased with how these came out. I wore them already today. I think they should wear well. I called them 'Fruitloop' because the colors reminded me of the cereal. I didn't think to much of the color when I first saw it but I think it's pretty cool knitted up.

Those are gorgeous!

How did you make the cuff be zigzagged, too--by just making the ribbing shorter? One gal in my knitgroup is doing her cuffs in garter stitch, which makes them zigzag nicely, but I prefer the texture of however it is you've done yours. :)

I love the colours, inspires me to try socks once again. I've not had much luck with fit.

LaughingRat, didn't see an email for you. I think my cuff it a little more zigzagged because I made a larger cast on and then decreased a little ways into the stitch pattern. I think thats why they do it anyway!
