Knit entirely in the round with no heel turn. These lightly textured socks are worked from the top down with self-patterning yarn and have a contrasting cuff, toe and afterthought heel. The heel is added after the rest of the sock is completely knit making the pattern easy to adjust for different foot lengths.

My patterns are designed, not just written down, because I want your project to be a success!
Before knitting begins, I sketch ideas, test yarns, stitch swatches, create charts, do math and consider a variety of skills and construction methods. Each pattern uses standard knitting terminology and notations, is edited for technical accuracy and has a logical, easy-to-read format.
I do the work so you can relax and enjoy the knitting.
