Why Barbie? How the Barbie Movie Rocked the Internet

Barbie has always been an iconic figure in the world of fashion and popular culture. With her glamorous style and ever-evolving looks, she has inspired countless individuals to embrace their own unique sense of fashion. Recently, the release of the Barbie Movie took the internet by storm, reigniting the passion for all things Barbie.

The movie showcased not only Barbie’s journey through different fashion eras, but also her journey from complacent to complete. This cycle is represented in the 3 different sock knitting patterns:

1. Best Day Ever – This lovely lace sock knitting pattern embodies Barbie’s love for everything. Every day is the best day. Everything is always awesome.

2. Bon Voyage to Reality – This groovy textured sock embraces how off-center Barbie began to feel before setting off to reality land to find her struggling playmate.

3. I Am Kenough – The circular nature of these cables symbolize that Barbie is complete all by herself. She doesn’t need perfection. She doesn’t need a man to complete her. She is who she is, and that is enough.

Materials & Tools for Your Barbie-inspired Sock Knitting Patterns

Before diving into the patterns, let’s gather the materials and tools you’ll need to bring these Barbie-inspired designs to life. For each pattern, you’ll want to work with fingering weight yarn and US 1 knitting needles (or the size you need to get gauge).

US 1 knitting needles, also known as 2.25mm needles, are my preferred size for working with fingering weight yarn. They provide the right tension to create a snug and comfortable fit for your socks. Make sure to choose needles that you’re comfortable working with, whether it be double-pointed needles or circular needles for magic loop knitting.

Fingering weight yarn is perfect for creating lightweight and breathable socks that are ideal for year-round wear. It also allows for intricate stitch patterns and excellent stitch definition, ensuring that your Barbie-inspired socks will showcase every detail beautifully.

While any fingering weight yarn will do, the testers and I found that solids or low-contrast tonals worked best for these patterns. The solid color really gives the gorgeous patterns the chance to shine! That’s why I chose…

The Neighborhood Fiber Co’s Studio Sock

I was first struck by how strong this yarn felt. You touch this yarn and think “Yeah, I’m going to be able to wear these socks FOREVER.”

And then there are the colors…

Man. The Neighborhood Fiber Company‘s color game is spot on. I came across their booth at Rhinebeck and instantly fell in love with every skein. It was a hard call. But when I saw Mondawmin, Charles Village, and Waverly hanging up next to each other I was sold.

These babies screamed “Barbie” and I was more than happy to oblige.
