EEP - it looks like there’s a snafu on the chart of this pattern, which will be fixed after the holiday weekend. Part of the chart and legend are cut off. Legend stitches read as follows:
c2/1 right purl - slip 1 st to cn, hold in back, k2, purl 1 from cn
c2/1 left purl - slip 2 sts to cn, hold in front, p1, k2 from cn.

The chart is a bit trickier - the first 20 rnds are cut off. Two solutions to get you through till Monday. PM me your email, and I can send you the pdf of the chart,


turn the chart upside down, work rnds 61 to 32, turn right side up and work rnds 32 - end. (it’s a symmetrical pattern so the last half of the rnds are a mirror image of the first half)

This will be fixed on Monday, and a pdf update will be sent out.

Thanks for understanding.

Marama was the female personification of the moon in Maori culture. She was also the goddess of weaving, plaiting and arts. Just as the moon’s presence weaves in and out of our lives every month, so too does the cable in this sock by weaving in and out to create a stunning detail.

This pattern is one of the beautiful patterns in the Big Foot Knits book by Andi Smith.
