Hold the Pickles

A versatile sock with something for everyone

In “ye olde” days, there was a burger chain that claimed you could “have it your way.” This sock pattern will let you “have it your way” too. Mix and match cuff, heel, toe, and even yarn weight to create a sock exactly your way.

Though it sounds hard to believe, this pattern really does include enough options for you to make more than a dozen different socks – cuff down and toe up instructions, with a variety of heel, toe, and cuff options. You also have a choice of using worsted or fingering weight yarn. It is like getting 18 patterns for the price of one!

Worked in worsted weight yarn, it is a super quick gift or a cozy around-the-house sock; worked in fingering weight, it is the perfect ankle sock.

What’s included?

Pattern contains full instructions for both fingering or worsted weight yarns with customization options for the best possible fit. It also includes full cuff down and toe up instructions with 3 different cuff options, 5 different heel options, and 5 different toes. Hate Kitchener stitch? Use the star or short row toe. Only like toe up? You’ll have 2 toe and 2 heel options. You can knit socks for everyone in the family without ever changing patterns.

Depending on options chosen, suitable for the advanced beginner to intermediate knitter. Skills required – basic stitches, knitting in the round, increases, decreases, slipped stitches, pick up and knit, short rows. Additional skills for some versions – grafting, basic knowledge of cables and lace, German short rows.
