As it Goes – Free Sock Pattern

As it Goes – Free Sock Pattern

I’ve been knitting socks for some time now and, to be frank, there is no shortage of great free sock patterns out there.  Still I wanted to create something original. I have this gorgeous wool/silk/nylon blend, hand-crafted yarn I want to use. My first attempt at using  this yarn didn’t yield pretty results. The pattern was too busy. I knew I needed to use a very simple pattern with this variegated yarn but still I like texture. I’m just not a vanilla sock kind of gal.

Anyhow, here’s the pattern.  It’s a free download.
