This elegant herringbone pattern is well-suited for both men and women's socks. The firm fabric created by the herringbone motif is balanced by ribbing on either side of the leg which adds enough stretch for a great fit. This is a classic design you'll never get tired of; you'll be knitting these socks over and over again in every color. The pattern instructions are provided for three sizes, small, medium and large.

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.
