Your new favourite socks

Loads of people asked us at Craft2.0 on Saturday 'Where can I find a good sock pattern?'.

Well, here is the link to your new favourite socks: Cookie A's Monkey.

I've knitted two pairs: one in Hazelknits High ocTANG (I gave these away) and a second pair, all for me, in green Wollemeise.

It really is a wonderful pattern - in fact, I think it's time to cast on another pair. Even if you haven't knitted a pair of socks before, these have a wonderful rhythm and a great base pattern. 64 is the magic sock number - it's perfectly versatile.

Do you have a favourite sock pattern? What is it? Please share or else i'll end up with a drawer full of monkeys!

  1. I love Los Monos Locos which is a toe up version of Monkey, I've done two pairs. I also love the Lifestyle Toe Up Socks - No Swatch Needed by Charisa Martin Cairn which taught me the toe up cast on and heel that I now use for all socks. Yarn Over Cable is also really fun and looks great with slightly clownbaffish yarns.
