Changeful adjective having the tendency or ability to change; variable




Sometimes something is too much fun to just do once! That was the case for the lovely stitch on these socks. It looks smashing worked as an all over pattern (as in the yellow version), but it also lends itself to both a more sedate rib (as on the blue version) and to something a bit fancier (as on the gray version).

Best of all, you don’t have to decide which version you want to make until you’ve worked the first few inches, so you can totally play it by ear and see what the knitting fates have in mind for you!




They’re written in four sizes (60, 66, 80, and 88 stitch cast ons), and you should feel free to adjust your gauge a bit to fine tune the fit of the sock. Just be sure that you’re working at a gauge that gives you a sturdy sock fabric with your chosen yarn!

I recommend working at something around 7, 8, or 9 stitches per inch, and I’ve included a table to help you figure out what gauge you’ll want to use for the size you need. With that range of sizes and gauges, the socks will fit a foot (measured around the ball of the foot) between 7.75 and 13 inches (with lots of points in between).




These are perfect for you if:

  • You’re feeling indecisive
  • You want lots of options with your socks

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)
