Matchstick socks are worked toe-up with a round toe and a short-row heel. They feature a stretchy slip-stitch and rib pattern that has an easy rhythm and works well with handpainted or semi-solid yarns. Elegant and simple to work, they're perfect for a man or a woman. The pattern comes in three sizes and should fit older children to adults.

I engage in many crafts including knitting, spinning, crochet, quilting, sewing, and embroidery. My husband and I are permitted to co-exist with our three cats, our dog, and my crafting supplies.
I have had knitting patterns published in Knotions, Knitcircus, and Interweave Knits Accessories, and the Fresh Designs book series.
