Zombie Socks

The first pattern for Sock Madness 2 has been released so I can now show you . . . Zombie Socks!

They were designed by Sheryl Ball and she says that the drop stitch pattern reminds her of a dark and misty night where there just might be zombies lurking about. She also suggests listening to “Thriller” or watching a “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” marathon while knitting them.


Aren’t they awesome? The pattern was very well written and lots of fun to knit. Entertaining as hell, too. I’ll let you know if Sheryl makes it available when Sock Madness is done.


The yarn is Opal Hand Painted Color #18 that I’ve had in my stash for ages. I think it’s perfect for Zombies.


Don’t look now but I think I see one coming! mwahahahahaha

  1. Beautiful! Makes me kind of sad that I’m not participating this year (of course at the rate I’m knitting these days, I wouldn’t have been in the competition long).

  2. Wonderful pairing of yarn to pattern! I noticed you didn’t say how long it took you to knit them, though. 😉

  3. Wow! Complete sock love! Niiiiiice pattern – you’re such a good pattern pusher Carole. hehe *smoooch* I’ve missed you. I hope you’re all happy and well and feeling like spring is just around the corner. 🙂

  4. Your Zombie socks came out great! I really liked this pattern a lot too. Dropping stitches feels very freeing when done on purpose.

  5. Oh, bummer, I forgot about signing up for Sock Madness! The first pattern is great. I agree that the yarn you chose is perfect for zombie socks!

  6. You chose the perfect colorway for those socks. Yours turned out extremely nice. I’m excited to see what pattern is up next!

  7. Wow, an interesting pattern… how do you think they will wear? Will the drop stitches be weak points? I was laying out a batch of handknit socks to dry and thinking about which sock yarns hold up the best… these photos has me thinking about pattern choice too… hmmm.
