Customize your own sock pattern

At this site, you enter some pieces of information (needle size, gauge, ankle circumference, type of heel desired) and get a step-by-step pattern for knitting socks.

Most sock knitters I know already have a regular/vanilla sock pattern they like to use, so maybe this is nothing new to most of you. I do like how you get a one-page pattern that’s easy to tote around. I think a printout would also be useful to file away if you’re made socks for a particular person, so you can have a record of what you did.

    Filing is a kind description of my process, but I do tuck away those notes… somewhere…

    Perfect for when I’m lazy and don’t want to think numbers!

    If any of you give this pattern a try, let me know!

    That’s really cool. I already have a cool sock pattern from a friend that I tote around and love for myself, but when I’m looking to do socks for someone else, I think I’ll try it. Thanks.

    This is really cool. Wish I had this when i created my own vanilla sock. Definitely flagging it because I like what you said about it being useful for socks you make other people. Thanks for always finding us cool stuff to look at!
