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.
Tired of plain vanilla socks? Love cables but need a quick knit or a travel project? Want to learn cables?
The best of both worlds, this pattern combines simple ribbing and cable braid design elements, but when combined the execution holds your interest and the results rewarding with a pair of socks that rock.
These knit up very quickly with an easy to memorize pattern. Yet, there's enough going on to keep you from getting bored.
