Many thanks to Barbara Walker’s creativity in providing the large spider pattern. Thanks also go out to Chewyknits for her help in getting this pattern together and allowing me to add her chart of the large spider to my pattern. Check out her fabulous sock “The Gardener” for another fun spider sock. Chart lovers will have to use their intuition- I hear there is a small difference in the transition between my pattern and the chart provided, but I am sure you’ll be able to sort it out.

Errata added 9/7/09:
Wollgeschnatter has brought it to my attention that there are a couple of little mistakes within the big spider chart included with my pattern:
-In the middle of row 17 there’s a knit stitch missing before and after the “M”s.
-In row 19 there’s a wrong sign (compared to the written instruction there should be the sign for “Left Twist, purl bg” instead of a simple “left twist”). Reading right to left Row 19 of the Spider Chart should start with “purl 3, Left Twist, purl bg TWICE”
