When I realized that my husband needed several new pairs of socks, I dreaded the thought of the same old vanilla socks in black, dark grey or dark blue that men like. So I handed my husband a few stitch dictionaries and told him to choose patterns he likes. I chose yarn in colors that he would accept and that still wouldn’t make me crazy while knitting. The idea of the “Hubby needs socks” ebook was born. For every pattern, I chose a different heel and a different toe to make the knitting even more fun.
If you are like me, I hope you will love the ebook! Today, the first three patterns went online. You can get the standalone patterns, or all three in an ebook at a discounted price! If you buy the ebook now, you will automatically receive three more men’s sock patterns in February.
The Ascona Socks feature a simple knit-purl-pattern, a horseshoe heel which combines short rows and a heel flap, and a star toe. The stitch pattern is written out as well as charted.
Many thanks to my tech editor cupani and my testknitters chicco, puffycats and sandy-in-the-sun.
The Enclosed Cable Socks feature a cable panel on stockinette ground, a patterned heel flap, a heart-shaped heel and a variation of the star toe. The stitch pattern is written out as well as charted.
Many thanks to my tech editor cupani and my testknitters Andrea1302, JessisSocke, Karate and Melli35.
The Amour Fou socks feature an easy to work stitch pattern that lets you concentrate on the interesting construction with an afterthought heel that is worked like a toe and a toe that is worked like a heel.
Many thanks to my tech editor Michelle Hazell and my testknitters inyy and Melli35. Any remaining mistakes are mine.
The German patterns will also be available at Kuschelfein Maschendesign.
