Earthen SocksGraphiteMud FootRed Bird Knits designer Robyn Gallimore was inspired by the graphic designs of African Mud Cloth in a series of sock patterns. The bold geometrics are an example of textile patterns that translate well into knitting colourwork designs.
On the far left is “Earthen Socks”, then “Graphite”, and on the right, “Mud Foot”.
