Tailgate has been released into the world…
Tailgate is an experiment in sock construction. These shortie-socks are worked from the cuff down and feature unique heel and gusset construction designed to highlight self-striping yarn.
This unique construction results in very roomy gussets that may not accommodate all feet (if you have a high instep, you might love these socks). Instructions are included to modify the gussets to fit your feet.
This pattern includes optional arch shaping and a star-toe. The pattern has been tech edited and test knit. Instructions are included for 5 circumferences, and foot length is customizable. The instructions are written only and are needle-neutral so you can use your preferred needle style and method of working small circumference in the round.
Are You A Patternfish User?
Sadly, Patternfish has announced that they’ll be closing down at the end of May. If you have patterns in your Patternfish library, you should download them onto your computer or cloud storage service before the end of June. After that, they’ll be gone for good. If Patternfish was your preferred platform for purchasing patterns, you can still find hundreds of thousands of patterns (including mine!) on Ravelry and Loveknitting. I’m also in the process of making my patterns available in the Kindle store on Amazon, and I’ll let you know when that’s set up and ready to go!
