In July of 2022, I took down all my patterns. A tiny handful are destined to return, most are not.

I’m still releasing new patterns (along with other fun projects). I just want to focus my time and energy on making new things rather than on maintaining a back catalog of hundreds of older patterns. But there are lots of new things planned, and I’m excited to share them with you!

If you want to follow along with what comes next or read a little more about why I made this change (and the nifty things that happened along the way), you can do that here.

And don’t worry, if you had the pattern in your ravelry library before it went away, it will still be there. It’s always a good idea to keep backups on your own computer (websites don’t last forever), but nothing I can do can take anything out of your library (and I wouldn’t even if I could). Taking the patterns down just means no on else can buy them.

One size fits all is a joke. A nasty joke, and not very funny. Knitters deserve better. This pattern is the answer!

It’s written for a wide variety of yarn weights. You can easily use fingering, dk, or sport weight yarns. Instructions are given for working at four different gauges (6, 7, 8, and 9 stitches per inch in stockinette) and for eight different sizes. The combination means you are almost certain to find a size that will work for you or anyone you knit for (size options range from under six inches to more than twelve inches).

And just in case that isn’t enough, there are also two variations of the top of the foot (one a slightly more sedate rib, the other a rather more energetic swoop). Knit it in a nice quiet color and make the plain top, and it will pass muster with even the most conservative of sock wearers. Break out a wild yarn and make the swoopy top, and it will please the more adventurous folks out there.

And of course the stitch pattern is addictive (and fast) and the resulting sock is beautiful. You really can’t go wrong!

These are perfect for you if:

  • You want a pattern that works for a huge variety of yarns and sizes
  • You love mirrored socks
  • You think two sock versions are more fun than one

They’re not for you if:

  • You don’t like charts (the pattern uses charts)
  • You hate swatching (you need to swatch to check your needle size)
