Sorry, this product is out of stock.

With this pattern it might finally be time to stop claiming that I’m not a sock knitter. It started with the engineering, a toe-up, heel flap sock with arch well fitting arch shaping, that I’d previously tried out with a simple stockinette design. Highlighting the elegance of this shaping with a simple garter rib pattern that flows into cables on the top of the foot and cuffs resulted in something so compelling and fun to knit that I actually completed both socks in the pair myself. It probably helped that the sport weight yarn knits up faster than most sock yarns, plus it results in the slightly heavier socks I covet for wearing inside my winter boots and around the house. They’re also pretty good on the yak ranch!

My favourite aspect of the arch shaping is that it creates a bias fabric pointing towards the heel. "is means that no short rows are necessary to round the base of the heel before working the “flap” which is worked back and forth, decreasing onto the extra stitches that were added while working the arch shaping.
