To celebrate the release of Jeanie and the upcoming holidays, all my patterns are 20% on Ravelry with coupon code PEPPARKAKA!

I’ve knit a lot of socks in my knitting days, and I’ve always wanted to design a sock pattern myself. So, this is Jeanie!

Jeanette's socks!

Jeanie, knit from MadelineTosh tosh sock in Sequoia
These socks were knit for and named after my friend Jeanette. I really love how they turned out. I started off mapping out cables on graph paper. I changed my mind a couple of times before I settled on this pattern of interlocking cables that flow seamlessly from the cuff into the lattice heel flap and simple ribbed foot.

I love elegant details in knitting, so when knitting Jeanie, I strove to make sure the lines of the cables are never interrupted, including at the toe, and the junction of the leg, heel flap and instep. This means shifting the stitches around on the needle a few times, but the end product is well worth it to me.


My favourite part is probably the cable heel flap. Does it get any better than an intricately cabled heel?
