All proceeds from the sale of this pattern will be donated to Autism Speaks in honor of my friend Danny and his family.
As of June 30, 2013, I've raised $5 for Autism Speaks.
This is a traditional cuff-down sock with a heel flap and gusset. The jigsaw puzzle pattern is added with duplicate stitch after the leg is knit.
The pattern is not written for a specific sock knitting style - it is very easily adapted for DPNs, two circulars needles or magic loop.
The yardages specified are for the main color. You will also need several yards each of red, yellow, light blue and dark blue.
Small - foot circumference 7" (17.7 cm) (300-350 yds/275-320 m of main color)
Medium - foot circumference 8.5" (21.5 cm) (325-375 yds/300-350 m of main color)
Large - foot circumference 10" (25.4 cm) (350-400 yds/320-365 m of main color)
The pattern includes negative ease, and will stretch to comfortably fit the foot circumference.
32 sts and 40 rows = 4" (10 cm) in stockinette stitch in the round
400 yards of Fingering weight
I've crocheted just about my whole life. I taught myself to knit in the early 2000s and haven't slowed down since. I've also gone through counted cross-stitch and needlepoint periods.
I almost always modify knitting patterns I like, so about a year ago I started designing and publishing my own patterns.
All of the patterns that I sell have been tech edited and test knit before release.
