Knit Batman Socks

February 1st, 2011

This summer I blogged about dyeing some yellow yarn for a sock project. I’m finally ready to show off my finished project, Batman socks!
Batman socks
Everyone who knows me knows that I adore both Batman and knitting socks, so the combination seemed inevitable. To complete this project, I first knit a pair of plain cuff-down socks with Snow Cone Sock-Ease. Using this great chart created by Elizabeth Thomas, I then duplicate stitched the Batman logo with my dyed Marshmallow Sock-Ease. The best part about this project is that both parts were very fast and easy, but the results are amazing!

    Is the dying post still available? The link doesn’t seem to be working for me; it appears broken. Thanks, Chris

    These socks are awesome! I have one more question for you…the chart is 45 stitches wide. You said you knit a basic pair of cuff down socks. Are we talking 64 stitches in the round? 72? I guess you’d want a fairly small stitch so that the chart worked well on the side. Thanks!

      Hi, Chris. I generally cast on 64 stitches with size 2 needles for my socks. Depending on your knitting and the size of your ankle, you may use bigger/smaller needles and more/less stitches.

    How do I get the pattern for these adorable socks! (That I will be making for grown men.) LOL

      Jill,

      She used a regular sock pattern, and used a chart to duplicate stitch the logo onto the socks. Hope that helps!
