Introductory Sale - 20% off through October 31, 2017.
Squigglez is a unisex sock that has traveling in mind and features a central knit thru the back loop column that moves to and fro down the leg picking up its neighboring columns along the way until all the columns are traveling. The pattern can be worked one of three ways: Original, featuring off-set traveling columns and an unusual gusset; Alternative, featuring synchronized traveling columns and an unusual gusset; and finally K.I.S.S. (Keeping It Simple Squigglez) which has synchronized traveling columns and a traditional heel flap and gusset. The unusual gusset allows you to carry the pattern all the way around the gusset and requires no picking up of stitches instead you’ll work just one giant heel turn to return back to your original stitch count. Although the pattern is not written for two colors it looks wonderful that way - just work your purl stitches in one color and your knit thru the back loop stitches in another (be sure to adjust your gauge accordingly).
This pattern includes four documents - an introduction plus one document for each version of the sock. Read the introduction first to get an overview of each design and the differences between them, then chose a design and print out the corresponding pdf. Do not let the size of the documents scare you - this is quite possibly the wordiest pattern ever because of the way the traveling unfolds and requires separate charts for different sizes, and except for the occasional increase or decrease your only stitches are knits, purls, knit thru the back loops, and right or left crosses.
Most importantly Squigglez is also a sock with a purpose - one that hopefully bring some smiles and healing to some in need of a bit of both. Fifty cents from each sale will go to Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital’s area of most urgent need. So not only are you knitting a fun pair of socks, you’re also bring some much appreciated help to the kids at Le Bonheur!
Project needs: 400 to 450 yards of light fingering or fingering weight yarn size 2.75 mm / US 2 needles (your choice of style for knitting in the round)
