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 sock is an example of Cedar architecture, a top-down method with increases distributed around the foot between the ankle and the base of the foot, like a skirt. This particular sock has a unique arrangement of increases that allow the leg’s design to flow toward the toe, and it is one of my very favorite socks in the whole book. I hope you will try it!
