8 Must-See Absolutely Free Sock Knitting Patterns

Eight free and totally killer must see sock knitting patterns curated by This Knitted Life

I have had socks on my brain this week. I don’t know what this says about me. Maybe that my feet are cold?

I’ve been perusing Etsy and other sites for sock yarn when I have no time or business doing so. I’ve even sourced Size 1 (2.25 mm) needles with trial intentions of letting go of my Size 2 (2.75 mm) technique and seeing what comes my way.

Daring, I know.

It’s getting wild and woolly over here.

I’m sharing some free sock knitting patterns today. I’ve downloaded and read all of these patterns, and they pass the Respectable Pattern test. I feel confident sharing them here. All photo credits go to the designers (photos are linked back to the pattern’s Ravelry page).

Enjoy!

Strands of Gold by Linda Garland

This is a new pattern, just published on Ravelry last month. I want to knit this pattern because it’s toe up (which I haven’t tried yet) AND includes a short row heel, so there’s no need to pick up stitches (my least favorite part of sock knitting). Well done, Linda. This pattern’s in my queue for sure!

Miss Lemons by Heidi Alander

Miss Lemons is another newer sock pattern, published in May 2016. This pattern calls for top down construction with a grafted toe over a 60-stitch circumference. I think this will be perfect for my new Size 1 needles. I’ve been favoring 52 stitches on Size 2 needles, and this will be a good transition, mathematically. The base stitch is lacy but nothing too impossible. And I love this lemon yellow color! My soul warms just looking at these socks.

Buttonjar’s Basic Sock by Julie Cashin

Julie’s sock pattern is also newer, published on Ravelry in June 2016. This pattern also calls for casting on 60 stitches with top down construction and a grafted toe. This is a simple pattern, which I favor for speedy socks. The upper sock is ribbed, but the foot is all stockinette.

Vanilla with Sprinkles by Jenna Krupar

Jenna has written up a very basic sock recipe. Her pattern is also top down with a grafted toe. My favorite part is that the pattern includes cast on options for small, medium and large sizes (52-60 stitches), so you don’t have to do any math regardless of your size requirements! I think all the Super Duper gorgeous and fun sock yarn available these days makes simple all-stockinette socks more than satisfying. Knit on! This would be a perfect starter sock pattern for the new sock knitter.

Hermione’s Everyday Socks by Erica Lueder

I know Hermione’s is a staple sock pattern favored by many. I’ve only knit it once for my Man Socks. The pattern calls for 64 stitches on size 1 needles with top down construction and a grafted toe. I used size 2 needles with Madelinetosh Tosh Sock and found the socks were suitable for big feet.

Blueberry Waffle Socks by Sandy Turner

I’ve knit this pattern four times! It was my staple for a long time. I like it because the math is based on casting on 52 stitches, which fits me well. The pattern calls for DK weight yarn, but I used fingering weight sock yarn with perfect results.  The design is based on top down construction with a grafted toe.

A Nice Ribbed Sock by Glenna C.

I would be remiss not to mention this pattern because I used it for my first ever pair of socks, inspired by Glenna and her lovely blog. The design is based on a 64-stitch circumference and also includes top down construction and a grafted toe. I had to convert the math to 52 stitches to fit my feet, but that wasn’t the end of the world. I would recommend using this pattern (without adjustment) for man socks or big feet socks.

Pixel Stitch Socks by Purl Soho

I’ve had this pattern on my radar for far too long now. THESE SOCKS ARE GORGEOUS. This design is a bit unusual (for me) in that it calls for toe up with a provisional cast on that is grafted in the end. The pattern provides math for three difference sizes  (thank you!), the smallest of which is 60 st circumference. Two different skeins of yarn are required, but the outcome is oh so pretty! This pattern also includes a short row heel, which has a lot of appeal to me. I hate picking up stitches. Purl Soho always comes up with cool, appealing patterns, and this sock pattern is no exception.

I look forward to seeing you at the Yarn Along. I started reading Today Will Be Different* the other night and CANNOT put it down. This novel is written by Maria Semple, who also wrote Where Did You Go Bernadette*, my favorite book (so far) this past year.

On How I Almost Got Caught Up On Some of the Things

Okay, that might be an overstatement.

Especially if you count the five thousand toys and bits of shredded cardboard box (ahem Rocket Ship) Reed left strewn throughout the house before he went to bed.

But, I do feel a lot less frantic than when I wrote this post a couple weeks back.

Baby hat in the works over at This Knitted Life. Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light in Logwood.

I’ve gotten in some knitting time and found a good stride in my projects. I actually need to pause from knitting and catch up on some Computer Knitting (pattern writing), but I almost don’t want to. All I seek in the world is to keep on knitting.

No interruptions.

I’ve taken pause to mindfully admire the season’s colors, to go hunting through the garden for the last of the tomatoes and other such bounty. I’ve hacked back the asparagus patch. Yanked out the zinnias. Harvested (nearly) two of the olive trees. Acquired pumpkins at fair market value. (Our own patch met a dismal end this summer…I don’t want to talk about it…) Split kindling to no end and hauled a Respectable Load of fire wood into the house.

I’ve released the hens to Free Range now that their only potential horticulture victims are the persimmon trees, which seem amply loaded and will surely provide enough for all, pestilent poultry included.

I am ready, World.

Bring it.

I am now on Version 4 of the baby hat…nearly finished as long as I don’t trip on the way to the kitchen (to dig into the chocolate pudding) and break a finger.

Could happen.

Turns out I was right when I wrote down the number of stitches I cast on for Version 2. You think this would have been obvious when I circled the number in orange ink with a little star next to the number.

Why don’t I ever believe myself?

It’s not like I was remembering a value from my head. I had actually written the darn thing down. Hello Frazzled Me.

Onward. Plus now I have an extra baby hat.

Knitting Shelter poncho over at This Knitted Life.I am LOVING Andrea’s pattern. I don’t know if this poncho will fit in the end, but it’s been fun to knit up in Brooklyn Tweed’s Shelter. This yarn is Such a Trip. I haven’t knit in Brooklyn Tweed before and almost didn’t. This stuff ain’t cheap. When I was hemming and hawing over which yarn to choose, I happened to catch some pro-Shelter/Jared Flood articles in my Feed concurrent with my decision consternation and figured hey, it’s only money.

Shelter feels like a sponge was put through a pasta maker that spit out little square strands of wool sponge. It’s wild.

Knitting someone else’s pattern is much more fun than coming up with my own, I hate to admit. But it’s true. I feel like I am on a Knitting Vacation, and I have barely left the sofa.

I’m still not caught up on life. It pains me to admit I will probably never feel caught up on life. I will, however, finish my knitting projects, one stitch at a time.

Mistakes and all.

Dolores in Action

Dolores by Dawn Catanzaro. Knit by Andrea @ This Knitted Life.
I love this photo not just because Reed and I look great and so happy but because I am wearing my Dolores. All those hours of hard-won lace stitching finally shine through, thanks to the assistance of professional photography. That night when my lace work literally exploded off the needles—right before my eyes—seems but a distant memory. No suffering. No frustration. Just my nice emerald sweater, now more than a year later, wrapped around my sticky little son and his naughty, devilish giggle.

(You can now submit parenting advice on how to get your child to listen to you when you say NO in the comment section. I suspect selective hearing might be either genetic or learned at a startling early age.)

After DAYS of drying (on the radiant heated bathroom floor, no less), my second grey poncho is now off the needles! I can’t wait to share it with you just as soon as I can snap some respectable photos and write up the pattern.

This means I only have one more grey poncho left to knit (my third). I have already resolved that I am not buying anymore grey yarn in 2017.

Scout’s honor.

(My fingers may be crossed behind my back. But I’m not telling.)

Just yesterday, I was chatting with my Knitting Compadre in Life about my immediate knitting plans, and I realized I pretty much have the rest of my Knitting Year all planned out.

AND, it involves very little holiday knitting. That almost killed me last year. Never again. This year, everyone gets cards.

Maybe.

After I wrap up the Third Grey Poncho and Ver. 4 of the baby hat, I am finally going to knit Reed a sweater. It’s been a long time coming. I’ve had the pattern picked out since the beginning of the year. It’ll be my first attempt at stranded color work. Send wine and brace yourself for swearing. I still need to order the yarn, but it’s on my short list.

(I have this sinking feeling that Reed will spill grape juice all over this sweater on Day 1. I think this means I can no longer purchase grape juice, at least until he has outgrown the sweater.)

Otherwise, I plan to use my Malabrigo Worsted scraps (I have grey ahem Polar Moon, a bright pink and a turquoise/aqua to work up some simple striped kids hats for Reed and his buds) and perhaps put my two skeins of Spin Cycle yarns to some unknown use.

I hope to reward myself for a year of good knitting by FINALLY knitting myself Lesley from Home & Away*. I can hardly wait!

After that, I bet it will be New Years. I hate to say it. It seems so far away, yet I KNOW the end is in sight. I can feel it. Hek, I just planned it all out. All my knitting days from today until December 31st. Pretty much anyway. It’s fairly shocking.

But at least I’ll have a new sweater.

And socks. I didn’t mention those, but they’re on the list too, as always.

I look forward to seeing you at the Yarn Along. I’m STILL listening to I’ll Give You the Sun* and reading Truly Madly Guilty* and loving both. I hope to FINALLY be on to a new book next week. Phew.

My Story


Over the past decade, I’ve chased a lot of wild dreams about how I might earn a living doing something, well, different.

Because somehow doing all the NORMAL things we’re taught we’re supposed to do wasn’t enough. Yes, I went to college, and yes, I even have a graduate degree. And, on most days, I find my Regular Career quite satisfying. (I’m a hydrologist when I’m not knitting.) I often don’t mind Going Through the Motions of Life.

It’s what we do.

But sometimes I wander a little.

There was the time I wanted to be an event planner. And the time I wanted to be a real estate agent, before 2008 at the height of the market of course. Or a house flipper. (Too much HGTV during that particular stint in life.) I guess I’ve kind of always wanted my own business, which never occurred to me AT ALL in my younger years. Mentoring women to be entrepreneurs wasn’t such a Big Thing like it is now.

There was the time, after reading the Four Hour Work Week*, my big idea was to manufacture cute wheelbarrows with fancy, bright prints to jazz up the mundane tasks of pulling weeds, hauling firewood and raking leaves. Any woman’s Yard Work Dream. Who wants a boring ol’ black, navy, or brown wheelbarrow?

Not me.

For two months, my husband and I were going to start a permaculture plant nursery.

And then we were going to open a distillery (which I still think is a good idea, but I’ve happily settled for sampling vodka and other spirits from the micro-distilleries boldly opened by others in recent years…).

Oh! And the food truck. Our town in the Middle of Nowhere has ABSOLUTELY NOWHERE to eat, so I was going to do everyone a service and open a food truck. Until I crunched the numbers and decided standing in front of a griddle in a glorified tin can during the heat of summer might not be All That after all and instead was a miserable way to quickly Go Broke.

Despite all these hair-brained tangents, I kept going to work like people do. On bad days, I was inspired by Christine’s world adventures and lived vicariously through her globe trotting lifestyle, always wondering: how would I do that?

Then we had Reed.

It’s true what they say. Having a child changes everything.

I wasn’t able to return to my previous full time job after having Reed. I needed a part time gig, and my old position was a full time program only. So I started racking my brain. What could I do? What did I want to do?

It felt like my big chance.

(Years later, I now believe EVERY DAY is a Big Chance.)

I had asked myself these questions before. It’s not like it was the first time I thought about Going Rogue. But it felt more pressing then as I looked at my infant son and our rural life and wondered what the next chapter might look like, newly jobless for the first time since high school.

While I quickly found a near-perfect part time gig that I still love and the immediate fear of poverty and living under a bridge with my baby was put to ease, I still wondered. What might be in store for me? What can I make happen? What do I love to do?

What can I say, I think I was channeling Oprah.

I saw other women online who appeared successful in a crafty sort of way with Etsy and the like. My brain was going down that road a bit.

Goat milk soap? No.

Cross stitch kits seemed to be making a comeback, but I hadn’t picked up an embroidery hoop since age 8. No.

I had all kinds of wild ideas on my list, on top of all the other Maybe-This-Maybe-That possibilities I’d cycled through all the years prior.

Then one day it hit me. I was on Ravelry and saw Martina Behm’s Brickless. At the time, it had something like 2,000 projects. (Today, there’s nearly 5,000 projects for that pattern.)  I remember doing the math. Two thousand times $4.00 USD each. This woman made $8,000 USD off a scarf.

Dang.

That was my golden ticket. I remember looking at then itty bitty Reed and calling my husband with an enthusiasm not dissimilar to how Neal Armstrong must have felt when he landed on the moon and proudly announcing, with sincere relief, I HAD IT ALL FIGURED OUT.

I will make a pattern for a scarf one time and sell it 2,000 times and pay all my bills.

Bam.

Now you’re probably chuckling by now, especially if you are also a knitwear designer. Clearly I didn’t exactly do a very thorough job on my market research for knitting pattern designers (which was actually quite unlike me at the time as Number Crunching is one of my strengths…but the overhead seemed quite low and Number Crunching felt superfluous…at the time).

So what did I do?

I grabbed a skein of yarn from my Little Yarn Store and quickly set about making the most basic triangle scarf of all time and uploaded it to Ravelry.

At the time, I wasn’t an expert knitter (nor am I now). I was a daily knitter but not nearly as obsessive about knitting as I am today.

And I had never designed a pattern but I figured how hard can it possibly be?

Just thinking back to these moments, now 3 ½ years ago, makes me laugh at myself. But I was determined.

Fake it to you make it, right?

Right.

Anyway, I uploaded that first pattern to Ravelry and anxiously awaited my 2,000 sales.

Ha.

Nothing happened. Like, literally, NOTHING HAPPENED.

Not even a lousy five bucks.

I was undeterred and made more patterns, and STILL nothing happened. No money. NOTHING. Just Ravelry staring back at me through my computer screen in this horribly mocking sort of way.

What were you thinking?

While I quickly realized my math was a little off (okay, a lot off) and discovered perhaps there was a little more to this knitwear design thing than I had paused to consider In the Beginning, I found that I loved it. I enjoyed the work. Even when I was messing up (all the time).

I soldiered on, driven just as much by my determination to be successful as I was by my love of knitting. I was inspired by other designers. I stayed the course. Every time I picked up my knitting, I told myself I was working.

Note I did not quit my day job.

Years later, I now have my blog and realized I love writing as much as I love knitting (which I kind of already knew, but that’s a story for another day.) My designs are now modestly more successful, although I will say I typically still land squarely within the most common bracket of designers’ sales on Ravelry. (Ravelry reports most designers selling patterns on their site earn under $50.00 USD monthly). I’m in good company. On many levels. I like the friends and colleagues I’ve made through this work, and I sometimes can break even on my Yarn Habit, if I don’t add in the value of all the TIME I invest.

We’ll just ignore that little detail for the time being.

I still have my eye on the prize and feel confident good things are coming. At least that’s what I am working toward. I’m nearing four years in and just as motivated today as I was then, if not more so. So thanks, Oprah.

I love the work, and that’s what counts.

Rainland Shawlette Pattern Release

Rainland Shawlette by This Knitted Life. Pattern provides instructions for both DK and Sport weight yarn. Amazing one skein wonder. Sometimes simple is better.

Remember when I finished this baby? And the little grey version?

Well, the pattern is finally out. Tech edited, shiny, and everything. The best part is the pattern includes versions to accommodate both yarn weights: Sport and DK.

Rainland Shawlette by This Knitted Life. Pattern provides instructions for both DK and Sport weight yarn. Amazing one skein wonder. Sometimes simple is better.

I love this pattern because it is simple. Sometimes (most of the time) simple knitting is my favorite. Especially as yarns are so amazing and soft these days. The truth is I often feel like I don’t need a fancy pattern. My gorgeous yarn is enough.

I just want to knit it up.

Rainland Shawlette by This Knitted Life. Pattern provides instructions for both DK and Sport weight yarn. Amazing one skein wonder. Sometimes simple is better.

That’s why I love Rainland. It’s as basic as they come. I would have titled the pattern Basic Shawlette, Plain Jane Shawlette, or even Boring Shawlette, but those names have actually been used already on Ravelry.

So, we have Rainland. All you need to warm your shoulders on a drizzly (or truly rotten) day.

Rainland Shawlette by This Knitted Life. Pattern provides instructions for both DK and Sport weight yarn. Amazing one skein wonder. Sometimes simple is better.

Rainland is also super cool because it’s a one-skein wonder. If you have 360 yards (329 m) or so of a lovely skein of DK or Sport that’s been waiting for Just the Right Pattern in your stash…well, this just might be your number. Put those souvenir skeins to use!

Rainland Shawlette by This Knitted Life. Pattern provides instructions for both DK and Sport weight yarn. Amazing one skein wonder. Sometimes simple is better.

The stripy version of Rainland is knit in a handspun DK weight yarn that was gifted to me by a friend. Her sheep. Her spinning. Her dyeing. Special. I like wearing it “wrong side” out quite a bit also. The colors are fun that way.

The all-grey version was worked up in Madelinetosh Pashmina. Um, that’s amazing stuff. So soft with an out-of-this-world Drape Factor. It grew A LOT during blocking, and the pattern is written to accommodate that as well.

Rainland Shawlette by This Knitted Life. Pattern provides instructions for both DK and Sport weight yarn. Amazing one skein wonder. Sometimes simple is better.

I love these easy crescent shawls and could knit them over and over. I think they are very wearable in scarf or shawl formation, with substantial (but not too substantial) tail ends for wrapping or tying.

The bottom garter edge is knit first, followed by the stockinette middle. Simple wrap-and-turn style short rows create the crescent shape. If you are new to short rows, don’t fear. You can still do this. The written instructions are there and quite clear. This would actually be a good starter pattern for a knitter new to short rows, or someone who might need a refresher. There’s not a lot of other craziness going on to cause undo stress.

I believe in you.

Rainland Shawlette by This Knitted Life. Pattern provides instructions for both DK and Sport weight yarn. Amazing one skein wonder. Sometimes simple is better.

Rainland is available on Ravelry and Love Knitting for $5.00 USD. (Subscribers, check your emails. You should have a coupon code for 50% off. Mwah! I love you all!)

The holidays are fast approaching (Gasp! Faint! Cuss a little!), and this one-skein wonder just might make a nice gift for someone on your list.

Rainland Shawlette by This Knitted Life. Pattern provides instructions for both DK and Sport weight yarn. Amazing one skein wonder. Sometimes simple is better.

So, here’s to simple. And easy. And workhorse knits. A cheers to you!

I look forward to seeing you at the Yarn Along. I’m still listening to I’ll Give You the Sun* and reading Truly Madly Guilty* and loving both.  I haven’t made much progress on my audiobook because Reed insists on listening to his own stories, with which he is officially obsessed (The Magic Tree House* series). I think I am going to have to find the kid some wireless headphones so we can each enjoy our respective audio stories in the car. Already, we go our own way. So much for car chats. Sigh.

Redemption, Vol. 2

A new baby hat in the works over at This Knitted Life using Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light.

Unsurprisingly, I still haven’t redeemed myself.

I thought I was all (well, mostly) in the clear when I finished my last cream colored baby hat…but then the hat was actually a wee bit too small for the neighborhood baby (AKA Baby Hat Model).

Of course.

I had been cleverly working up these Much Improved baby hats from my ample stash of scraps of Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light, which of course I LOVE. My scraps had run their course and I seemed short on sufficient yardage of a suitable shade to make a third hat. This tragic fact left me with no other choice but to order more online (I settled on the Logwood colorway) and patiently wait for the U.S. postal system to work its magic.

In the meantime, the too-small hats were shipped off to a brand new baby with a smaller head. As it seems, the list of these newborn creatures seems to be growing at such a staggering rate, and I just can’t keep up. I’m backlogged in the New Baby Gift Department, with more and more on the horizon, and have actually wondered if I shouldn’t just buy a gift like a normal person instead of holding on to this bizarre determination to knit something for all these new babies.

A knitter need not be defined by an unspoken responsibility/obsession/expectation to knit things for new babies. A knitter can still be a knitter and knit things for people other than new babies.

That’s precisely why someone invented Target.

All the same, I am determined to get this hat right, as my own knitting karma is directly attached to fixing and finishing this pattern before sharing it with the masses for free.

I have this knitting journal of sorts where I scribble significant knitting notes to myself, particularly when developing a pattern. It’s where I work out my math and write down the steps I take such that I can eventually decipher my illegible handwriting and type up my notes in a manner that might actually make sense to other human beings. In the case of the cream colored baby hat, I had indeed written down the number of cast on stitches so I could easily tell how many additional stitches I would need to make a hat correctly sized for the Neighborhood Baby Model after my prior failure.

Except…and I won’t go into detail here…it didn’t exactly work out that way, and I couldn’t actually BE CERTAIN how many stitches I had cast on. Was it 78 or 88? I anguished on this a bit and even tried counting stitches and pattern repeats from the photos in my prior post and Instagram, but in the end I just couldn’t be sure. I even went so far as to ask my friend and recipient of the cream colored baby hat to please count the picot points on the brim for me and text me with the results.

I’ve heard nothing. New moms have a lot on their plates.

So I’ve taken a wild guess for Try Number 3, hoping the hat will be larger than Try Number 2 but not so large as to be unsuitable. This invariably means I have guessed wrong and am spending all my free knitting hours knitting a hat identical to Try Number 2, which will also be TOO SMALL for the Neighborhood Baby Model, thus requiring Try Number 4.

I can say this: I am making sure my notes are clearer and I am not mailing away Try Number 3 until I am absolutely positive I have documented how many stitches I cast on with unequivocal certainty.

So help me, Great Wool Spirits.

Amen.

On Fall Knitting


I typically think of Fall as a gentle season of calmness and slowing down. Knitting quietly in the window while staring mindlessly at the trees in the yarn, leaves adjusting hue as a last hurrah before they drift to the ground and rot until I rake them up. Fall is when I aim to tidy the garden and plant new crops of hearty greens. I clean the house and tuck away the outdoor furniture, safe from the impending rains. I will uncork the season’s first bottle of red, and happily knit stitch after stitch, satisfied with all that it.

Not this year.

This year, I run around like a crazy lady. Reed keeps saying, like a broken record in his I-am-being-so-funny voice, Are you nuts? The poor little guy doesn’t know how right he is.

Yes, dear child, I AM nuts. Or, I am going nuts.

There has been no calm. No slow. Hardly any knitting. I have not sat in the window and stared, thoughts drifting. The garden is in shambles. The lawn is on the verge of becoming its own non-native forest ecosystem, exotic grasses and all. Maybe there are tomatoes left to pick. Maybe that have all rotted. I haven’t even had a chance to look. The outdoor furniture? Well, it’s dripping wet. The rain beat me to it.

The red wine, however, has been uncorked. I can assure you that. Although somehow (and I have NO idea how this could be possible), a single glass seems to hit me harder than I recollect, sending me early to bed at the detriment of my knitting. Time to reassess that little joy.

As I move through the motions of each day, flashes of fall color zip by in a hazy blur. How do you reconcile seeing something and missing that same thing all at the same time?

I forget how grounding knitting is to me until I have been severed from my routine, leaving me only to catch myself wondering, for the first time, if that little vacant plot next door might be suitable for sheep of the woolly sort.

Worry not.

I WILL be reunited with my knitting soon, leaving me only to fret about which one of my four projects to finish first: Poncho 1, Poncho 2 (also pictured above in Brooklyn Tweed Shelter, sweatershirt colorway), the baby hat ver. 3, or some socks?

I look forward to seeing you at the Yarn Along. I’m listening to I’ll Give You the Sun and reading Truly Madly Guilty
