The solution to the problem of too much work for too little wear, is free-sole socks. These socks are knit so that the whole sole or any part of it can be removed and re-knit leaving the rest of the sock intact. The whole sole is made of one yarn, the rest of the sock with another. You might want to do this if you are using a precious yarn (e.g....

A fairy godmother at Sock Summit gave me four skeins of Anzula’s Oasis. This is a wonderful yarn of camel down and silk: no elasticity, no luster, but soft beautiful colors and a dream to knit. So I made a sweater. I find that by itself it is an elegant and comfortable top. With a shirt under it, it is a light extra layer. Under a jacket, it is ...

This pattern was published as Anna’s Shetland Kimono in 2008 by Yarns International for a light fingering weight yarn. That version is no longer available as Yarns International no longer exists.

“This Autumn hued jacket is worked sideways creating unusual textured stripes.”

Knitting: Cardigan
Reminiscent of the Renaissance, Anna Zilboorg’s batwing styling for a flattering, easy-fit cardigan sweater exudes both elegance and playfulness. The stitch patterns used feature an unusual but friendly-to-knit rib, a lovely texture stitch front and back, nicely draping stitch in the sleeve, pulled together with simple garter. This pattern...
Knitting: Pullover
Anna Zilboorg’s Tarragon is quite the handsome man’s sweater – generous in proportions for comfortable fit with an attractive (but not fussy) combination of texture stitches to make it truly special. The samples are knit in natural shades of gray or the same gray yarns overdyed for a subtle heathery range of the same color.
Knitting: Cardigan
Gauge is 5.5 sts/inch, 22 rows/2.5 inches over one repeat of the pattern.

Anna developed an effective, unusual slip stitch pattern with a simple three stitch cable in silk to emphasize the vertical. As complex as the stitch pattern looks, it is actually worked with only one yarn at a time.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
The decorations on this sock look as though they were sewed on but they are knitted in. The pair of socks takes about 4 ounces of the main color yarn plus 20 yards of each of two contrasting color yarns. They are knit toe-up.

This striped sock is the easiest toe-to-top sock in the collection, hence a good one to start with to see if you like this method. I’ve used colors from other socks for stripes, but this pattern works nicely even monochrome.

The appearance of this small lace pattern is a little misleading. It seems to have a cable in the middle, but in fact does not. The crossed over stitches are made with a k2tog (right slanting decrease) with a lifted increase right behind it in the next round.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
These socks are named for twin stars because they are the same, but not quite. They are worked from top to toe with zig-zag lines knitted in. This is probably the easiest of the top-to-toe socks.

Gemma is the sock that got me started on this whole clog sock project. I saw the pattern in the Barbara Walker’s Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns (p. 158) and thought what a splendid clog sock it would make, continuing all the way to the bottom of the heel.

Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
I do not happily knit intarsia. I do not willingly strand while purling. But I really liked this heel pattern and there was no other way to do it. The intarsia is necessary only for a few rounds, and one can, on the heel, knit it backwards if purled stranding is an anathema.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
Shaula is one of my favorite socks, especially if worn over another color. There are lots of spaces for a color to show through. (I always wear my hand knit wool socks over something thin and machine washable. It saves a lot on hand laundering, as well as on wear.)

Someone may notice that one of the Sirius socks (p. 35) has been knit top-to-toe and the other toe-to-top. I thought, when I planned the sock, that the pattern would look right side up only if knit upside down - which meant starting at the top. I found the whole thing so unpleasant to make that I didn’t want to do another. If I didn’...

Vega, like Aldebaran, is a fully stranded party sock that wants to go dancing. It also shares Aldebaran’s drawbacks of being a little hard to get on because of the relative inelasticity of the stranding, and being hard to make exactly the length you want because of the pattern demands. Surely trivial problems.
