So, I don’t normally make the patterns from my books available individually (I’m a sucker for books, and sort of feel like splitting them up into pieces is a tiny bit sad!). But, just for the month of November, I’m making a few of the most popular patterns from several of my books available individually.

At the end of November they’ll go back to only being available as part of the book. But, if you just want to take a peek, now’s the time.

And, also just for November, if you buy the individual pattern and then decide it would be more fun to have the whole book, whatever you spent on the individual pattern will count toward the purchase of the whole ebook. You don’t need a code or anything…just if you’ve bought the individual pattern and then come back and buy the whole book, the cost of the book will be discounted by whatever you spent on the individual pattern.


Updated, expanded, and finally back in print, this delightful new edition of Silk Road Socks features sixteen intricate patterns inspired by oriental rugs.

All fourteen of the original patterns are here, each revised to fit my current style and with extra sizes added (that includes sizing them all for both fingering weight yarn and dk/sport weight yarn). There are also two brand new patterns available here for the first time ever. And of course along the way I’ve upgraded all the fun bits (new photos, new charts, beautiful illustrations…all the things that help make a book lovely)!

The book is available in both paper and electronic versions, and every paper copy of the book includes a unique code (look inside the back cover) that allows you to download a copy of the electronic book. You’ll be able to store the electronic version in your ravelry library if you like (though a ravelry membership isn’t required to access the electronic version).

You can get the electronic version here on ravelry, or swing by amazon or ask at your local yarn store to get a paper copy!



Gördes (sometimes Ghiordes) is a town in western Turkey, where rugs have been made since at least the eighteenth century. In the late nineteenth century, the prayer rug style became popular, and any rug with an arch was likely to be called a Gördes. Books from this period are often full of blatantly incorrect (though charmingly romantic) information about both the town and the rugs.

Rugs of strikingly different colors, materials, and constructions have been attributed to Gördes, and telling a real Gördes from a fake can be challenging. Many feature an arch supported by decorated columns, both elements represented in these socks.
