Tangles Socks Knitting pattern by Vikki Bird

Does a yarn ever tell you what it wants to be? I made a few swatches in this yarn before it became these lovely ribbed and cabled socks: each time I tried something new, it steered me in the direction of twisted cables, and squishy rib. The sock told me it wanted to an organic heel that grew out of the ribbing. I’m delighted with the direction the yarn steered me in, and I hope you can find a yarn to make this pattern in that is similarly particular! The Tangles Socks are knitted from the…

Throwback: Autumn knits

'Autumn leaves and the grass is jewelled...'*, autumn is here! A friend has recently had a new baby and I wanted to make a small, quick gift to celebrate the arrival. Right back at the start of my design career, I designed a couple of cute hats: a pumpkin and an apple, both of which are perfect as gifts for an autumn baby. They aren't the only autumnal designs I've created though, so why don't we take a look at all of them? Apple for Teacher** and Harvest's Bounty** These were some of my…

Seed Head socks pattern by Vikki Bird

Dip stitches create shapes that are reminiscent of the seed heads that we see growing in the fields and hedgerows in the UK. These Seed Head socks incorporate plenty of these dip stitches to create seed heads that sit on either side of a central, cabled stem. The dip stitches have the added advantage of being a lot of fun to knit, and once you have knitted a couple, they get much quicker to work! In case you are unfamiliar with dip stitches, I have included a photo tutorial at the end of the…

Bobby Socks

As a child, I used to love reading vintage boarding-school stories, and always imagined that the girls in them would wear cute little ruffled socks while eating their midnight feasts and drinking ginger beer. The Bobby socks are the first in a series of sock patterns: the Midnight feasts collection, which pays homage to these books with a series of cute ankle socks, all featuring a frill around the cuff: show them off by wearing them with circle skirts and Mary-Jane shoes, or let the cuff…

Siren song socks

I have a large collection of variegated yarns and always struggle to find patterns that won’t be overwhelmed by the yarn. One solution is to knit what is essentially a vanilla sock with a slipped stitch detail, an idea that led me to my Siren song socks. The stitch pattern is used in a single panel along one edge of each foot (the socks are a mirrored pair), and is easily memorised; the socks are named after the Siren, a mythical creature, whose call was said to lure sailors to rocks – the…

Contorto Socks pattern by Vikki Bird

One of my favourite ways of showcasing stitch patterns is to knit them into socks; by the time you have got to grips with the stitch pattern you are ready to tackle the heel, so socks always have something interesting going on, even if the pattern is the same throughout the sock. I found this stitch pattern in a stitch dictionary while looking for something else entirely and couldn’t get it out of my head! I’ve named the socks ‘Contorto’, which is Italian for twisted, after the beautiful…

Lynda Socks

For years I said that I was not going to knit socks, then I started going to a local knitting group and every week watched my new friend Lynda knit sock after sock; when I caved and bought my first sock yarn, she appeared with several books on knitting socks and after my first pair I was hooked. These socks are my thank you to Lynda for introducing me to sock knitting.
