Are you sick of knitting swatch after swatch and not getting gauge? Or worse, you knit without a swatch and make yourself a sasquatch sock? With the Any Gauge Ribbed Socks pattern you only need to knit one swatch. The pattern is built around your gauge. Now you can knit a sock that fits using any yarn.
The green socks are made of 1 skein of Madelinetosh Sock in [Plaid Blanket]; 395yds / 361m per skein; 100% Superwash Merino (fingering weight)
The red socks are made of 1 skein of Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks That Rock Mediumweight in [Farmhouse]; 380yds / 347.5m per skein; Superwash Merino (sport weight)
These socks are knit toe up. The instructions feature a short row toe and heel. Any toe or heel method can be used in place of the short row method.
This pattern is designed to match whatever gauge you get. The stitch number counts are 40 (48, 56, 64, 72, 80)
I taught myself to knit in 2005, crochet in 2006 and spin in 2010. It seems I have a habit of developing hobbies.
Fiber truly is a passion. I've worked at a wool mill, done knitting for a farmers market and currently work at a yarn shop. And like everyone else, I'm working on a book. But I figure anyone can start a book, the only thing that matters is that I finish mine.
