New Pathways for Sock Knitters, which I published in 2007, is by far my most ambitious and comprehensive sock book. It contains 8 unique architectures, each one introduced with a quick little baby or toddler sock, followed by a collection of adult designs, and a Master pattern so that you can literally knit an infinite number of variations on each architecture.

Hundreds of designers have used these architectures as a leaping-off point for their own innovations, with the Riverbed, Upstream, and Cedar architectures appearing most often. This was my hope—that the new fields I plowed would become gardens in the minds and hands of others, including you!

This digital version of the book insures that it can remain a resource for knitters and designers forever.

This child’s sock is an example of Foxglove architecture, a toe-up method with increases distributed in any way that you like, except for in clusters, around the mid foot. It will amaze you that it works.
