Flatiron Knit Sock Pattern
This fun sock with its exaggerated ribbing reminds me of the vertical textures in the Boulder Flatirons that inspired me when I purchased the Koigu Painter’s Palette Merino in Boulder, Colorado. The ribbing pattern has a slight twist to it making for an interesting knit without cumbersome patterns to memorize and when carried down the heel makes for fun clog socks. If you do not wish to have clog socks you can easily substitute your favorite heel. This highly textured pattern appeals to all ages and sexes!
This pattern contains 8 sizes from infant through large man sized socks so you can make a pair for everyone in your family!
As an added bonus, also included is a nifty, full-color sock wrapper to package the socks for gift giving that may be customized after printing.

This pattern is recommended for intermediate knitters who have prior experience knitting socks. You should know how to knit in the round, purl, ssk, k2tog, psso, sl 1, pick up stitches and Kitchner stitch. The pattern is written for knitting on a set of 5 DPNs, but could be adjusted to either the 2 Circulars or Magic Loop techniques for those familiar with those techniques.
