Say Hello To Circumvent!

Circumvent has been released into the world…

Circumvent is an experiment in sock construction that challenges the idea that socks have to be either cuff-down or toe-up. This pattern is designed to complement self-striping, self-patterning, or heavily variegated yarn, though it’s just as interesting in a solid or tonal.

The heel is worked first, and is round with evenly distributed increases. This heel is most comfortable for feet with narrow ankles and insteps.

Because our bodies are all so beautifully different from each other, and we have so many wonderfully diverse foot anatomies, there is an alternate heel option that may accommodate a wider instep and ankle. Have fun trying them both to see which one works for your foot.

After the heel, the leg is worked as it would be for a toe-up sock, then the foot and toe are worked as they would be for a cuff-down sock.

This is an advanced-intermediate pattern. Knowledge of sock and foot anatomies as well as the ability to read stitches is required.

You can download Circumvent with a 20% discount until Wednesday July 31st, 2019 (no coupon code required, the discount will be applied automagically at checkout).
