October is for Socktober

I love knitting socks and these days I always have a pair on the go. I wear my hand-knitted socks almost daily in the colder months of the year. I also love sharing my love for sock knitting through my sock workshops. But not everyone can make it to one of my workshops, so I wrote two basic sock patterns to enable everyone to benefit from my sock expertise.

To celebrate Socktober, I'm offering 30% off my sock patterns, Creme Brulee and Creme Caramel, until end of October 2016. Use coupon code: socktober. 

Creme Brulee is a basic sock worked from the top down on double pointed needles with a standard heel flap, heel turn and wedge toe. The pattern includes extra information and commentary throughout which makes it perfect for new sock knitters. 

Creme Caramel is my basic toe up sock pattern. These socks are worked in the round using circular needles and the magic loop technique. Again, the pattern is written with extra information and commentary to help you if you are new to this way of knitting socks.

Both patterns include three sizes for ankle circumference. The pattern will tell you how to customise the foot length to the length you need.

So if you're new to socks, why not give one of these patterns a go? Or if you're an experienced sock knitter but want a basic pattern you can use again and again, these two patterns are perfect for you too. They're my go-to standard sock patterns which I use when I knit socks for myself and my family.

To celebrate Socktober, I'm offering 30% off both patterns until end of October 2016. Use coupon code: socktober.

If you're interested in my sock knitting classes, please visit my Workshop page. I will be adding workshops for 2017 soon.

On 15 November, I'm teaching a 'Two Socks At A Time - Top Down' workshop at Spin A Yarn where I'll be teaching knitters who are already familiar with knitting socks from the top down, how to do it two at a time. You'll learn how to knit on circular needles using the magic loop technique and how to cast on for two socks and work all the different elements of a sock including heel flap, heel turn, gusset and toes. Contact Spin A Yarn to book.
