This pattern is currently unavailable. I’m doing a bit of house cleaning, and as part of that process, some of my older patterns are currently unavailable.

You can read a bit more about the project here if you’d like. And you can always check out my ravelry store for a list of available patterns.

Amenable adjective
-ready and willing to agree or yield, open to influence or persuasion

One size fits all is a joke. A nasty joke, and not very funny. Knitters deserve better. This pattern is the answer!

It’s written for a wide variety of yarn weights. You can easily use fingering, dk, or sport weight yarns. Instructions are given for working at four different gauges (6, 7, 8, and 9 stitches per inch in stockinette) and for eight different sizes. The combination means you are almost certain to find a size that will work for you or anyone you knit for (size options range from under six inches to more than twelve inches).

And just in case that isn’t enough, there are also two variations of the top of the foot (one a slightly more sedate rib, the other a rather more energetic swoop). Knit it in a nice quiet color and make the plain top, and it will pass muster with even the most conservative of sock wearers. Break out a wild yarn and make the swoopy top, and it will please the more adventurous folks out there.

And of course the stitch pattern is addictive (and fast) and the resulting sock is beautiful. You really can’t go wrong!

These are perfect for you if:

  • You want a pattern that works for a huge variety of yarns and sizes
  • You love mirrored socks
  • You think two sock versions are more fun than one

They’re not for you if:

  • You don’t like charts (the pattern uses charts)
  • You hate swatching (you need to swatch to check your needle size)
