Tumbling Water Sock Pattern is Available on Ravelry

My second top-down sock design is complete! This design was started in Cookie A's sock design class at stitches west 2013. For this pattern I started with a Japanese stitch design and adjusted the design to work in both a medium and a large size sock. The pattern has a large amount of stretch to fit a wide variety of feet and legs. Choose a light to medium solid or tonal yarn.

I have knitt both the medium and large size socks. Please report any issues you may find with the pattern.

while there is nothing unusual in this sock construction, there are some unusual stitches. You should be comfortable with lace knitting and able to knit non-typical stitches. Techniques used in this sock include:

  • Decreases: K2Tog, SSK, P2Tog
  • Right Slip Cross Rib or Turtle Track stitch (a Japanese stitch)
  • A stretchy cast on such as German Twisted Cast On or Tilly Buddy's Very Stretchy Cast On
  • YO
  • SL, K, K tbl, P
  • Pickup and K tbl
  • Standard heel flap construction using Eye of Partridge heel stitch
  • A custom gusset corner pickup.
  • Chart reading, as the pattern is charted only.
  • Kitchener stitch
  • Tumbling Water is available for free on Ravelry. download now
