No matter how many knitters I know, and I feel like I know quite a few, I always want to meet more! This sock pattern was inspired by the ever expanding community of knitters I have in my life. For me, knitting is so much more than just a fiber art, needle craft, or hobby. It is a shared interest that connects me with countless other wonderful people, and the starting point to so many dear friendships. So go out and expand your commuKNITTY, by chatting on Ravelry, attending a fiber festival or knitting retreat, visiting a local yarn shop, or knitting in public!
This pattern is written for identical left and right socks, and works well with tonal, highly variegated, and self-striping. The outward expanding ribbing is flexible, and squishy. You may need to go down a needle size to get gauge, or have a looser fitting sock.
This pattern also features the Spacious OMG Heel, which modifies the original heel to have a deeper more spacious heel pocket. This heel more closely mimics a gusset heel rather than a short-row heel, with twice as many gusset rows as the original OMG heel.
