A little monster of a modular sock - sorry, of a PAIR of modular socks - made up of five single objects that get transformed into multiple components, and designed to be knitted by a team of five and put together in wild and wonderful ways. And yes, there are steeks. Eight of them.

Details and pictures on my blog, here.

9-24-11: I’m preparing an update to the pattern that will include the following:

  • Yardage breakdown for the segments, so you can plan if you want to make each of them from a different yarn. For now you can find this information here.

  • A suggested approach (with illustrated tutorial) for casting on the Lower Intertubez by working both Provisional COs on the same needle in alternating stitches.

  • One actual correction/clarification: When working the Ace Bandage section, knit 1 full row into the waste yarn Provisional CO, and THEN join in the round and begin working the increase sequence. NB also - there is no reason not to work this segment in reverse if you prefer, i.e. by casting on at the widest part and using decreases to shape it.

(This update won’t be going out until I’m farther along with Rhinebeck preparations, but if you’ve bought the pattern it will be sent to you as soon as it’s available.)

ETA: I’ve been working up some special mods for the extra-high instep, and will probably incorporate those into the update as well - meanwhile, if this is an issue for you, contact me and I’ll send along my notes.
