lacunae sock

Posted on Posted in patterns

this sock has a secret—what looks like a humble 2-by-2 rib opens up to a mesmerizing texture of cocoon shapes that provide cozy warmth. the twist-stitch pattern adds a sturdy hand to the fabric and a snug fit around the foot to help it stay put.

many thanks to tina, who sent the amazing yarn used in the sample—i’m always happy to work with her fine fibers.
anne marie (sadly blogless) was the inspiration for getting this pattern to the finishing line—she urged me to design a sock, then offered to test knit it, and then, she knit two pair.
thank you as well to rachel who suffered through a few re-dos of the pattern before we had it where we wanted it. thanks!

  1. oooh I thought this pattern was released already! I think it’s one of my favorite sock patterns of yours. I love how the ribs look normal until stretched, and I just love the stretched pattern. Someday I shall be able to buy it… someday…

  2. Your socks are lovely! And I’m intrigued by that color of STR…hmmm, some stash enhancement could be in order!

    And look!!! Some lovely December sunshine!! Yay!!! Perfect for your photoshoot!

  3. In the pattern shop info, you have:

    5.5(6.5, 7.5, 8.5)” in circumference (unstretched)
    to fit feet measuring up to 7.5(8.5, 9.5, 10.5)” around
    50, 400, 450) yards

    I think there’s a teeny glitch in the yardage info…

  4. Love these! I will so go broke purchasing all of your patterns. Your socks (particularly the Smokin’ socks) are my absolute favorite sock pattern. These look like they could be another.

  5. oooh, I like those a whole lot! They looked nice on the needles, but on the foot – ooh la la, such a cool design.

  6. I’ve been waiting for this pattern to be released! I have loved this from the first time I saw your hat on. It is such a clever pattern, I can’t wait to knit them…

  7. yay! i’ll get to these eventually… after the orchid lace mitts that i’m presently working on, and the the woodsmoke socks i already bought yarn for, and the scarf that my mother is demanding that i make for her. 🙂

  8. I’ve already started mine! 😉 I’ve been waiting for a nice, simple pattern for my Artisan Sock Yarn, and this is perfect! I probably should have waited until I had fewer projects on the needles… Ah well.
