It'll still be awhile before I can get back to regular Freebie Friday patterns, so here's an interim freebie.
I designed this sock for Knit Picks a few years ago. When KP discontinued the yarn, they also discontinued the pattern. The rights have reverted back to me. It has proven to be a popular pattern- I get requests for it all the time. Instead of just sending the file out to people, I decided to post it.
You can use any self patterning or self striping yarn with this pattern- just make sure that the colors contrast sharply with the solid base yarn. If you come across a color section that doesn't look *right* with the background yarn, just cut it and go to the next color in the repeat. You get great shading and none of those pesky ends to weave in.
I couldn't figure out how to put the pdf file as a download here, so I printed out the pages and scanned them.
Do the usual- click on the images to enlarge, right click to save as jpgs, print from any graphics program.
