I made some Jaywalkers for my mum. The yarn is June's sock club yarn from The Yarn Yard. On the whole I'm pleased with the end result...





... but my mum can't get them on! I know the pattern doesn't have much stretch, but she has delicate feet and ankles and I'm by no means a tight knitter. Has anyone else had the same problem with Jaywalkers? I know it's a really popular pattern. These beauties are going to have to be passed on to someone with twiglet ankles Roll Eyes

They're beautiful!  I love the colors.  I'm so sorry they don't fit - I'm almost finished with my first pair of Jaywalkers, but I used the toe up pattern to be able to try on as I go.  I hope you find someone who can wear them!

Those look great!  I started them and once I got to the heel, I tried it on and it was to small, so I frogged it and havnt tried it again.  I hear its because the pattern isnt very strechy and other people have had the same problem.

Thanks for all your kind comments everyone. If (or most likely, when) I knit another pair, I'll use the large size whoever I'm knitting for. Because I really do love the way they came out Smiley
