Inspired by the novel The Man in the Brown Suit, by Agatha Christie, these socks offer classic moss stitch ribbing with a dash of cabled elegance. Suitable for a man or a woman, these socks provide an uncomplicated knit, with just enough variety to keep your interest.
The Man in the Brown Suit, at least in the novel, is mysterious, adventurous, independent, strong and loyal. We should all have a Man in a Brown Suit in our lives. Even if we have to knit it ourselves.
The pattern instructions are provided for four sizes, small, medium, large and extra-large.
Pattern includes instructions for toe up and cuff down, written and charted.
32 sts = 4 inches in stocking stitch; blocked.
|Women, Men, Petite, Tall, Plus-sized|

I prefer to design simple patterns that are (relatively) easy to knit. It might be redundant to say so, but I design socks that I’d want to knit. I want a pattern that looks fantastic, but isn’t ridiculously complicated. I want it to be easy, without being boring. I want to challenge myself a little, but not make things more difficult than they need to be.
I love cables, twisted stitches, and lace. But not all at the same time! I try to design multiple sizes for each pattern since legs and feet come in all sizes. I also expect knitters to take liberties with the instructions and be able to substitute their favorite heel, toe or cuff if they so choose. I’m also pleased when a pattern can be converted into toe up without too much effort, although not all stitch patterns lend themselves to this.
I do have every pattern test knitted to ensure accuracy and to get different perspectives on each pattern. However, I am human, so mistakes might happen. If they do, I’ll get them fixed right away.
