This top-down sock reveals its Cedar architecture in the gradual widening of the lace repeats, which you will soon learn by heart. You can also make graduated wrist warmers from this pattern - just work the leg through the end of chart 3, purl 7 rounds, bind off loosely, roll edge to the inside and sew down to match the cobblestone cuff at the other end.

New Pathways for Sock Knitters, which I published in 2007, is by far my most ambitious and comprehensive sock book. It contains 8 unique architectures, each one introduced with a quick little baby or toddler sock, followed by a collection of adult designs, and a Master pattern so that you can literally knit an infinite number of variations on each architecture.

Hundreds of designers have used these architectures as a leaping-off point for their own innovations, with the Riverbed, Upstream, and Cedar architectures appearing most often. This was my hope—that the new fields I plowed would become gardens in the minds and hands of others, including you!

This digital version of the book insures that it can remain a resource for knitters and designers forever.
