The Time After Time Socks are an elegant, classic design that will ensure your feet are the fanciest in the room. The design was heavily influenced by Art Deco architecture - hence an arching and geometric central lace panel with decorative cable columns. Despite its complex appearance, you’ll be surprised how intuitive, quick and fun the pattern is to knit. And not only does the name for these socks reference history, but it’s also a great song!

Small: 17cm (6 ¾“) circumference, fits approximate foot circumference of 19cm (7 ½”), length of 24.5cm (9 ¾”); women’s EU 37–39/US 6 ½–8 ½
Medium: 18.5cm (7 ¼“) circumference, fits approximate foot circumference of 22cm (8 ¾”), length of 25.5cm (10”); women’s EU 40–42/US 9–10
Large: 20cm (7 ¾”) circumference, fits approximate foot circumference of 25cm (9 ¾”), length of 27cm (10 ½“); women’s EU 43–45/US 10 ½–13

Foot circumferences are measured around the ball of the foot at the widest point and should be used to choose your sizing. Foot lengths are measured from the tip of the toes to centre of back of the heel, and are to be used as a general guide only. For the best fit possible, check all measurements in the pattern by trying the socks on the intended wearer.

Circus Tonic Handmade Revelry Sock (80% Merino, 20% Nylon; 374m {409yds}/100g), 1 skein Western Whipbird (green) or Southern Fairywren (grey) colourway, OR 100g fingering weight sock yarn

Samples used approximately 64g (240m {262yds}) for Small Size pair of socks (women’s EU 39/US 8 ½), and 80g (299m {327yds}) for Medium Size pair of socks (women’s EU 41/US 9 ½). Please note that the yardage requirements will vary depending on the heel option, sock circumference, foot and leg length, and any differences in gauge.

–2.25mm (US 1), at least 80cm (32”) length circular needle for working Magic Loop method, double-pointed needles or short 23cm (9”) circular needle, OR size to obtain gauge
–Cable needle
–2 removable stitch markers (optional during heel turn {toe-up version}, or for using a different style of needle/method of working in the round)
–Tapestry needle
–Tape measure
–Sock blockers (optional)

33 stitches x 48 rounds = 10cm (4”) in stockinette stitch, knit in the round and relaxed after blocking.

-This pattern is written for both toe-up and cuff down sock construction methods. A compiled pdf with both methods together in the one document is available to download, as well as separated toe-up and cuff down pdfs for your convenience.

-Instructions are written for the Magic Loop method of working in the round with a long circular needle. They are to be worked from the beginning to end of each round unless specified for stitches on first needle (N1; front of leg/top of foot), and second needle (N2; back of leg/sole of foot), separately. If you are using double-pointed needles or a short circular needle, use markers as needed to designate between what will be the front and back halves of the sock.

-You have the option of working either a slip stitch heel flap with gusset or a short row heel for these socks. The heel flap and gusset option is great for feet with a high instep, or for those who want a decorative heel, whereas a short row heel is shallower and helps to maintain patterning if you are using a self-striping yarn. You will need to know how to work short rows by wrapping and turning for both options.
