PATTERN DETAILS

This a pattern for the experienced sock knitter who is looking for a challenge! An untraditional construction makes these socks so special. Use fingering (4-ply) sock yarn. The pattern is ideal for selfstriping yarn. The pattern has four sizes and instructions on how to modify the pattern, for instance for high instep or wide calves. Most parts of the sock are knit back and forth. Only small parts of the sock are knit in the round. The sole of the sock is textured, thick and comfy. Two alternatives are given in the pattern: Eye of Partridge and Chinese Waves. If the sole of the socks gets worn out you can reknit the sole (instructions for this is not in the pattern). The instructions are written. The pattern also contains a sketch showing the different sections of the sock and in which order and direction they are knit. At the later part of the pattern no exact stitch counts are given. This is because the stitch count may vary due to foot length knit and adjustments made for fit. The pattern gives instructions how to knit each part, but you might have to make smaller adjustments like adding a half repeat or make a SSK instead of a SSSK when you run out of stitches. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knit in the round Increases and decreases Use stitch markers Knit, purl and slip stitches Knit flat Judy's Magic Cast on Yarn Over Short Row Heel (described in pattern) GAUGE 32 stitches and 44 rows = 4 inches If you want to knit to a higher gauge choose a bigger size.

My name is Maria Ekblad and I live in Sweden. I have been knitting since I was a child. I alway try to understand knitting and how stitches are linked together. This helps me to understand patterns and calculate how to make required changes. And sometimes I knit without any pattern at all. Only recently I�ve understood that my �knitting without pattern� is actually designing. And once I got that I started to write patterns. I have no licensing or restrictions regarding selling items made from my patterns. If you sell items made from my patterns I ask you to label them with name of pattern and designer and where to find the pattern (Craftsy). Of course you don�t hand out or sell the patterns, neither printed nor the files (due to copyright). All patterns are in pdf-format (no hard copies available).
