Patterns and printables

This page links to all of the patterns that I have published.  Many are free on the blog but I have also included those published elsewhere.

They are also all listed on Ravelry, so if you would like to link your completed project I'd be very happy as it means I get to see it and I do love to see what other people have knitted!

  1. I have been knitting for 65 years and just going to "have a go at knitting socks" because I have very small feet size 2.5 and can't find any socks to fit. Finding your tutorials very easy to follow. Going to start soon - I have the yarn and the circular needles but not the dpns so off to hobbycraft later to buy some. Feeling excited.

  2. Kirsty Barlow - I've replied to your question about shooting socks which came up on the old version of this page - I don't know if you'll find it again so here's the answer on this page too :)

    Is that just a long sock, Kirsty? Donna at Creative Mummy Bear has adapted the Sockalong pattern for longer socks - have a look at her blog and see if that's what you're after. Here's the link: https://creativemummybear.blogspot.com/2018/11/knee-high-socks-nailed-it.html Other than that, there have been quite a few people in the Winwick Mum Sockalong Facebook group who've wanted to make knee-high socks so there's some advice in the files there about adapting the basic pattern. Hope that helps! :) xx

  3. Love your "basic 4 ply sock" pattern! Just the thing I was looking for to knit a basic sock that would show off some really wonderful malabragio yarn. Thank you from Canada!

  4. Hello Christine. Do you have any easy patterns for knee length socks starting at the cuff?
    I've followed your other patterns and find them to be excellent! On my 6th pair!
    Best wishes

    1. Hi! No, I don't, I'm afraid, but if you have a look at Creative Mummy Bear's blog then she has adapted the Sockalong sock to be a knee-length one xx

  5. Hello from Wales. Love your blog. Im quite new to sock knitting but have made 3 plain pairs . It is quite addictive as it is fascinating to see a completed sock come off the needle with no seams required. Magical. Love that its a small poetable project for holidays. Loved your no nylon study as I'm avoiding plastic. One question, is it possible to knit 100% cotton socks for summer. Pam.

    1. Hi Pam, thanks for your comment! You can knit cotton socks but it's best to go for a cotton blend rather than use 100% cotton for socks as they lose their shape quite quickly. You should find a few choices if you do an internet search. Hope that helps! Xx

  6. I adore your site. I just spent half a day reading your instructions. I'm sorry I use a loom but would like to get back to needles. In one of your broadcast it looked like you have a store. If so I live in the USA would you be able to do business with me. Also your short round needles. What brand and how short?

    1. I'm glad you've enjoyed reading the blog, thank you for visiting! I don't have a store as such; I sell my Super Socks books and pin badges through the blog, and West Yorkshire Spinners are the suppliers of the yarn that I've created in collaboration with them.

      My short circular needles are Addi 30cm 2.5mm, but you can also get similar needles from Hiya Hiya, Chiaogoo, KnitPro and other brands in different lengths. Hope that helps! xx

  7. I’ve just finished my first sock!
    I knit one from another pattern but wasn’t happy with it so unraveled it all and started again using your basic pattern which is so much better.
    I’ve started the second while I’m on a roll (I’m also knitting Aran hoody jackets for my 2 little grandchildren for Christmas so it’s nice to swap between projects.
    One question - do you have to use sock blockers?
    Thanks again for your brilliant instructions.
    Anne

    1. Hi Anne, that's fantastic, well done! I'm glad the pattern worked out for you! I only use sock blockers if I'm giving the socks as a gift or if they're going to be photographed, otherwise they get blocked on my feet! Blocking stretches the fabric out to it's fullest extent to show off the shape or the pattern (particularly good with lace socks) but it only lasts until the next wash so unless they're being gifted, I don't tend to bother :) xx
