This pattern (along with most of my earlier work) was retired in the summer of 2022. However, it may be available for a few days once or twice a year. Read on for details!

In the summer of 2022, I realized that maintaining a back catalog of hundreds of patterns was kind of overwhelming. I couldn’t do it and still release new things. So I took my old patterns down so I could keep doing new work.

Since then, a handful of my favorites have come back, and lovely new things have come out. But the vast majority of the old patterns are retired and will no longer be generally available.

However, enough folks have asked about some old favorites that I’m planning to make many of the retired patterns available for a few days once or twice a year (most likely in late spring and then again in the fall around Thanksgiving).

  • If you see the buy buttons on this page, you’ve caught it on one of the days it’s available, and you’re welcome to grab it!
  • If you don’t see the buy buttons on this page, then it’s not currently available.
  • If you want to hear when the retired patterns will be available, subscribe to the mailing list or patreon, or keep an eye on my instagram.

The tide comes in and it goes out, day after day, year after year, with absolutely no regard for you or your plans. It does what it pleases. You learn to work around it, or you get soaked. I’m honestly still not sure if that’s comforting or infuriating. But I did finally learn not to get stuck on the rocks when the tide comes in.

When you make these, you’ll work the first half of the chart three times, then the half of the chart three times. That creates the stately progression you see in the pictures. But, unlike the tide, these can be changed a bit if you want. You can work each group of rows a different number of times (try twice if you like short socks or four times if you like them tall) or even repeat the first half over and over on the leg and the last half over and over on the foot. They’ll look great no matter what!
