Flannery sock pattern now available!
Yes, I can hardly believe it myself. Two patterns written in one week?! It's true -- Flannery is now available and ready to go whenever you (and your needles) are.
It's just occurred to me now that you haven't been formally introduced to Flannery. Allow me...
A sock inspired by the South, Flannery is eleganty rustic, featuring a wide knot cable and seed stitch rib.
The pattern is easily worked and memorized and is easily sized-up, making it a great fancy sock for men.
Here's a little bit more about her:
Size: Women’s Medium (or any foot/leg that is 8” in circumference.) The socks can be easily sized up by adding additional purled stitches between the cable and the twist stich rib.
Gauge: 8 stitches = 1 inch (2.5 cm) in Stockinette st.
Yarn: 440 yards of fingering weight yarn, preferably a solid or semi-solid colourway, to best show off the pattern. To make a pair of socks as shown here use 2 skeins of Elann Sock It To Me 4 Ply in Nutmeg (229 yards / 50 g per sock.)
Needles: One set of five (5) double pointed needles in US 2 (2.75 mm) or size necessary to obtain gauge.
Notions: A stitch marker to mark beginning of round (optional,) and a sewing needle to weave in ends.
Skills Needed: Knitting in the round, basic cabling, twisted stitches, chart reading and grafting.
To purchase: If you are a Ravelry user, please use the "buy now" button under Kethry's picture in the sidebar to the right to pay via PayPal to receive an expiring link to download the pattern instantly.

but most likely immediately.)
This is a great project for knitters who want to try (or practice) working with cables since it knits up quickly and is easy to memorize. With those long stretches between cabling rounds, this could be the perfect sock to knit in transit.
As always, enjoy! I'll be here should you need me.
