I love Knitty.com – it’s such a great resource for free patterns, interesting articles, and exposure to wonderful technical knitting. Unfortunately, the many fantastic knee-high sock patterns have been out of my reach unless I wanted to do a lot of math and, well, I didn’t really want to do a lot of math.
In fact, if I’m going to do that sort of math, I’m going to come up with my own pattern. *grumble*
Fortunately, there are some sock designers who are really starting to grok that legs come in a variety of sizes – and when you combine that with foot sizes you get all sorts of fun!
Emily Johnson, the designer of this month’s Garden Gate pattern seems to get it. The pattern is designed to allow for customizable combinations of different foot and leg sizes, with instructions written for calves up to 24 inches.
I was impressed when Knitty started requiring a wide range of sizes in their sweater patterns! I am kind of over the moon that someone has taken that philosophy and applied it to socks.
Way to go, Emily Johnson. I might just need to knit these. Love that faux backseam.
