Cocky Socks on sale from 2/10/11 through 2/17/11

After some gentle reminding, I finally got off my bottom and released the Cocky Sock pattern to the general public on Ravelry.   

To celebrate Valentines day, and the possibility that Booth will finally kick Hannah to the curb and get with Bones, the pattern is on sale for 35% off starting 2/10/11 at 9pm Eastern during the show and running all week until the start of the following episode on 2/17/11.

Pattern details are as follows:

Size: Woman’s M/L (8.5” circumference), or Man’s L. (10-10.5” circumference): Chart A is designed to fit a woman’s foot, and Chart C is designed to fit a man’s foot (2 repeats in DK weight yarn, or 3 repeats in fingering weight yarn).
To get started, you’ll need:
Yarn: 1 skein of any sock yarn in red for the main color (mc); 1 skein of any fingering weight sock yarn in white (cc). if knitting a man’s sock, you’ll need the same amounts of fingering weight yarn or approx 300 yds of each color in DK weight yarn.
  • fingering yarn: 2.75mm double-pointed needles; OR two sets of 2.75mm circular needles; OR one 2.75mm circular needles at least 24” long (or what ever size is necessary to hit gauge); OR
  • DK yarn: 3.75mm double-pointed needles; OR two sets of 3.75mm circular needles; OR one 3.75mm circular needles at least 24” long (or what ever size is necessary to hit gauge).
  • Fingering: 8 sts per inch in stranded pattern; OR
  • DK: 5.5 sts per inch in stranded pattern.
To ensure that you hit gauge, be sure to knit your swatch in the round. Stranding can tighten your gauge so be sure to do a stranded swatch as well. Chart B would be perfect to swatch with.

Stitch markers: 2 to divide the pattern repeats, 1 in a different color for the end of the round.
Size Notes: If your foot circumference is wider, you can add additional stitches between the chickens, or knit with a slightly larger needle to increase your gauge. Pattern provides two different charts to fit a man’s and woman’s foot circumference.

pattern cost: $6.00
