Gothic Spire

Gothic Spire

The Gothic Spire pattern by Cookie A was slow going, and required a special cable needle, but after I got going it was enjoyable. I had tried earlier to do the wraps with a regular, straight cable needle, but it was so cumbersome I decided I could not deal with the countless wraps in the pattern without a more functional tool, so I found a horseshoe shaped needle from an Etsy store that made the wraps a lot more fun, even if still slower than usual knitting. And Cephalopod Yarns Skinny Bugga! in a colorway from a gradient set was the perfect match for the pattern. I'm very happy with the result, and I think I might want to knit this pattern again.

  1. WOW! Those are incredible. I've eyed that pattern but I'm waiting till my brain can handle that level of sock intensity. The color you chose is fantastic!

    1. Thanks! The pattern is not overtly difficult, just time-taking with all those wraps.
