I’m thrilled to let you all know that my Doctor Foster sock pattern is now available as an individual download!
Even if I do say so myself, I love these socks! It’s my version of a vanilla-ish pattern – easy to memorise but not boring with some lovely little details and it’s a great unisex pattern…both me and Mr K have a pair.
The leg texture is created with lots of tiny cables combined with ribbing over the instep to give a really well-fitting sock. There are 5 sizes to choose covering 20 (23, 26, 28.5, 31.5)cm / 7¾ (9, 10¼, 11¼, 12½)in measurements taken around the ankle bone. It’s a really easy pattern to adapt too so if your leg is wider than your foot you can simply decrease more stitches in the gusset to take you down to to the next size. Likewise, reduce the number of gusset decreases if your foot is bigger than your leg!
The sample yarn which inspired the name of this pattern is Fyberspates Gloucester Tweed and the nubbly texture is wonderful!
A version of this pattern originally appeared in The Knitter magazine and has been updated and re-edited. You can now download it via Ravelry for £3.50.
