Sweet Niggles Socks

I have a new sock pattern for you today.

This pattern is in two sizes, Ladies Medium and Large, or you could say the second size is a Mens Medium. The socks feature a 1x1 ribbed cuff, a heel stitch flap, Half Hankerchief turned heel, and a Wedge style toe. The 2-color stitch pattern is incredibly easy. You'll be surprised by it. It works best with widely contrasting yarns, variegated and solid.

Granite Mitts

I have a new pattern for y'all.

I love the Granite stitch.

It looks so pretty and it's super easy to knit. I came across this stitch a few years ago when I was making a sweater for my son-in-law.

Here is a pattern for a pair of fingerless mitts utilizing the Granite stitch. It's written to be knit on 2 circular needles. The pattern requires about 180 yards of worsted weight yarn. You will also need size 5 needles, a stitch holder, stitch markers, a yarn needle, and scissors. The mitts knit to size Ladies Medium, which means an 8 inch hand circumference, and 7 inches in total length. They feature a thumb gusset for extra comfort. I hope you enjoy it.

Fuzzy Cuff Ladies Slippers

It's almost the end of 2013. In celebration of the new year, here's a new pattern for you.

These are my take on a very old slipper pattern. They are knit on size 10.5 needles using 2 strands of worsted weight yarn held together. The cuff is one strand of the fur yarn and one strand of the worsted weight yarn. They knit up very quickly. The pattern is written for Ladies size medium foot (8 to 10 inches). It is in PDF format.

Little Garter Checks

I have a new pattern to share! I call this Little Garter Checks Mens Mittens.

This fairly easy pattern is written for 2 sizes to fit larger hands, ie. men, and features a knit in thumb gusset for comfort and good fit. The smaller size has a finished length of 11 inches and a hand circumference of 8 inches. The larger size is 12 inches in length and 8.75 inches in circumference.

About 200 to 350 yards of worsted weight yarn and a stitch holder are required for these wonderfully textured mittens. It's written for 2-circular needles in size 5, but converting for double points or Magic Loop should be fairly easy.

Ribes Jumeaux

Happy New Year! I have a gift. A new sock pattern! I designed these for my son-in-law. They were his 2012 Christmas present. After knitting them I decided to write up the pattern and share it with the world of knitters. It has been fully test knitted. Thank you to lhensley, MooneTouched, and paolo of Ravelry for testing it for me.

This sock pattern is knit from the top down. It features a twisted rib cuff, contrasting slip stitch heel, and stripes in the cuff and toe.

The stitch pattern in the leg is called Twin Ribs, thus the fancy name for these socks. Ribes Jumeaux is Twin Ribs in French. It's written in 2 sizes- mens and womens medium, which is about a size 7-8 shoe.

This pattern is written for knitting in the 2-circular needle method but can easily be converted to other methods.

The file is in PDF format, 5 pages, and only 220K so it should download fast.
