Let instructor Lucy Neatby guide you to sock-cess! In this one-of-a-kind knit-along, you’ll receive two new lessons and a new design each month, so you can knit your way through three exciting knitted sock patterns. Start with the smocked Guernsey sock, as you learn how to work from cuff down, create a sturdy slip-stitch heel and work a toe chimney. Then, move on to the toe-up Serpentine sock, where you’ll knit beautiful cable patterning, the garter short row heel and even a nifty I-cord cuff. Want a project with a little more color? You’ll complete your knit-along with the Windowpane sock, as Lucy teaches you how to work a double-thick cuff, a two-color slip-stitch leg and the swirly star toe.

    I am starting the smocked Guernsey socks. My pattern says K1p3K1 which does not work out when it’s time to decrease. I now realize it should say K1P3K2. That’s what is shown in the video, but not the written pattern. I am enjoying the class, and love the sock pattern. I have knit many socks, but the hints in the videos are extremely helpful.

      I see that the error was mine. I needed to read the pattern to see how the K2P2 were created. Now that I’ve figured it out I am enjoying creating the pattern.

    I purchased this class many years ago along with the yarn. I can’t access the patterns. I have tried everything below. Has anybody been successful?

      Hello!
      After purchasing this class years ago, I am finally making my way through it. I’m currently on the Serpentine sock and I have a question about RND 13 of the pattern:
      “Work to MM, k8, k3tbl, work as set to eor”
      Is the K3tbl correct? It decreases the three stitches made in RND 12 with the k1-O-k1 back down to one stitch. In the video, Lucy has mentioned several times that we should now have two more stitches on our instep than we do on our sole but the k3tbl has made mine equal again. Was it supposed to be (k1tbl)x3, maybe?
      I hope that makes sense! Thank you!
      Hope that

    Hi, I’m knitting the Smocked Guernsey sock and I’m wondering if the sequence on rounds 8 & 9 is really ( p1, k2, p1) thank you

    I am on the last stretch of the smocked Guernsey sock. I see that I have pretty significant ladders right along where the decreases were done after the heel flap. There seems to be no way to upload a picture but I was hoping for some advice. I am casting on the second sock now so that when I’m actually done with this first sock I will have less inertia to overcome And I would like to avoid the ladders on the second sock.

    I’m confused. I’m trying to start the facing for the Windowpane socks and Lucy says to use the variegated yarn, but the picture looks like she’s using the plain colored yarn.

    I am just now finishing up the Serpentine socks – I decided to try it on one long circular needle, and it took me quite a while to master THAT technique :) Lucy says there are written directions for the back pattern, but I have looked and looked, and have not been able to locate any written patterns. I have tried to read the chart, and have written down what I THINK is the pattern for each row from 43 to 57, but it would be very reassuring to have specific directions. Have I overlooked those instructions somehow?

      Doubt it. It was specifically made for Craftsy (before Bluprint) and sold exclusively in the now closed Craftsy store.

      Check yarn.com! They are closing out the coffee cloudborn and have some other colors of some of the cloudborn yarns mentioned. They also have similar weight alternative brands you can use.

      WEBS has all remaining Cloudborn Yarns. I just purchased yarn for the Guernsey and Serpentine.

    I was able to view the patterns last week, around 13-14 November, but now the patterns for all three socks – Windowpane / Serpentine Toe-Down / Smocked Guernsey – are no longer available. Anyone know how to access / download / print the patterns?

    I am wanting to knit the Guernsy sock as my first sock project. Would a 100% Superwash Wool work well for a sock? It’s super soft, will it hold up to the wear and tear that a sock will take? Thank you!

      I usually use 75/25 merino/nylon, but I’ve heard if you use 100%, if you use a smaller needle size then it wears very well because the fabric is denser. You’ll find there are a lot of opinions on the topic and strong feelings one way or another.
