No slidding socks to knit

.fit and comfort, no sliding around the foot.

Its getting cooler and now is the perfect time to think about that next great pair of socks to knit.

Try the Criss-Cross Rib socks.  They feature a fun rib and cable pattern that is fun but doesn’t require too much attention.  They also feature ribbing on the sole to keep the socks in place and a gusseted heel to fit your heel better.

Sizes range from women’s small to men’s large.

Sock yarn used is Sky High Knits Superwash Merino Sock in Woodland Brown.

Both the sock yarn and the pattern are available on Etsy.



House Socks for the Whole Family

Here is the sock pattern for those lovely, little bit thicker hand made socks.  Using DK weight yarn, shown is Sky High Fibers Merino Cashmere yarn in Sky High Blue from  http://www.etsy.com/shop/SkyHighFibers   where you can also purchase the pattern.

The patterns, toe up or cuff down, are available in sizes 3-5 years to men’s xx-large and can be purchased for toe up construction or cuff down construction.  Features side gussets and a slip stitch heel flap.
