Scatterling \ˈska-tər-liŋ\ noun

  • One who has no fixed habitation or residence; a wanderer

My family tends to venture far afield, but we come together when it counts. We recently reunited to celebrate my grandfather’s 90th birthday. These socks, with their wandering but interlocking cable, were designed for him.

The sock is stretchy, and the pattern is written in 2 sizes. This, combined with different sizes of sock yarn, lets the sock fit a wide range of feet. Alas, it doesn’t let me give you an exact gauge measurement. As a guideline, in a thin sock yarn, aim for a gauge of 8.5 stitches per inch in stockinette, and in a thick sock yarn, aim for a gauge of 7.5 stitches per inch in stockinette.

In general, small in thin yarn will fit a small woman’s foot, small in thick yarn will fit a medium to large woman’s foot or a small man’s foot, large in thin yarn will fit a large woman’s foot or medium man’s foot, and large in thick yarn will fit an extra large woman’s foot or a large man’s foot. Photos show a small in thick yarn.
