square [ j ] jane's stranded monster socks

Well, after years of being heavily addicted to both wearing and knitting socks, i am taking the plunge into writing my own patterns.  I knit the sock intuitively and then reverse engineer the pattern later.

My patterns will be available as PDF files on Ravelry. The first pattern that will hopefully be available soon is a stranded sock pattern.  It's a Monster Sock as in it makes use of left over remnants that you may have from knitting up other socks.  A Frankensock if you will.  With the charted portions of simple stranded knitting though, it won't look like a Frankensock.

It is currently (as of July-August 2013) in test knit, being worked on by some absolutely terrific fellow Ravellers and should be available as a free pattern soon.  You can check here for availability... i hope you have fun knitting socks!

Update: as of August 8th, 2013, this pattern is now live and available as a free download on Ravelry.
