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.
For me, this pattern evokes images of the fresh green shoots of spring plants growing and wrapping around each other, as well as the many ways we as people are intertwined with those around us creating friendships, families and memories.
The cables in this pattern are simple 1/1 cables. You may wish to cable without a cable needle for a faster knitting experience. A link to the technique of cabling without a cable needle is provided in the pattern.
