Cat's Zebra Socks
These socks are the first sock featured in my eBook, Cat’s Sweet Tomato Heel Socks. You may buy the patterns as singles for $6 each, or for $20 you can buy the whole eBook and will receive all of the designs (one of which is exclusive to the eBook, not to be released as a single).
These wildlife socks are sized for babies through adults. The bouncy tendrils that form the mane are a bit addictive to make and are worked in place as you knit. And since no two zebras are alike, one toe starts with black, the other white. You’ll have enough yarn to knit two pairs for a child or one for an adult.
Sizes: baby (child’s sm, lg; woman’s sm, med, lg; man’s med, lg). Finished circumference: 5 (51/2, 6; 7, 71/2, 8; 9, 10)” or 13 (14, 15; 18, 19, 20; 23, 25) cm. To allow for stretch, these measurements are about 15% smaller than actual circumference.
The eBook is laid out in the style of my print books, with lots of illustrations, photos, charts, schematics, line-by-line instructions, and now for the first time, live video links. You can print just the pages needed for a pattern, or work beside a laptop or iPad (which also allows charts and images to be stretched so details pop).
Please join my new group, Cat’s Sweet Tomato Heels, for discussion and answers to any questions you may have.
