Lancet pattern by Kiersten Brandt
The lancet arch is a variety of pointed arch in which each of the arcs, or curves, of the arch have a radius longer than the width of the arch. It takes its name from being shaped like the tip of a lance. The lancet window is one of the typical features of the Early English (13th century) period in Gothic Architecture.

Squircle pattern by General Hogbuffer
This is a deceptively simple way of constructing a sock by reducing the flap to a very small strip and working an extended gusset in its place. The rounds form a right angle around the ankle and instep, which gradually softens into a continuous round; hence the reference to the mathematical problem of ‘squaring the circle’.
Neuloin isälle ja äidilleni lahjaksi Vanilla is the new black -sukat. Hauska sukkamalli, jossa perussukan jujuna on erilainen kantapää. Ohje on maksullinen mutta siinä on silmukkamäärät erivahvuisille langoille ja muutenkin ohje on selkeä. Isän sukat on neulottu sinivihreästä Schoppel-Wolle Admiral Cat print -langasta. Neulottuna monivärinen lanka käyttäytyi nätisti,ei läikittynyt eikä ollut muutenkaan paha. Äitini on kanervaisten sävyjen ystävä ja hänelle tein sukat Nalle Taika-langasta…
Selbu Socks pattern by Skeindeer Knits
The idea behind these socks is applying the look of a classic Selbu mitten into a sock construction. So, the back of the mitten hand goes along the leg and instep of the sock, whereas the palm pattern goes under the foot, the rib for the cuff, and the stripy thumb gusset for the sock gusset. And just like classic Selbu mittens, these socks have columns along each side with a lice pattern spine.

Show-off Stranded Socks pattern by Anne Campbell
The show-off in the name refers to showing off your yarn, especially if it’s variegated. The pattern stitch is fun and easy and looks pretty in almost all yarns. In order to make the pattern more interesting, I used a different architecture - the gusset is knitted at the same time as the heel “flap” which is done in the main pattern stitch. Instructions for 3 different gusset patterns are included.

Charybdis pattern by Fiona Bennett
In Greek mythology, Charybdis was a sea monster who belched out water in a menacing and deadly whirlpool. There’s nothing menacing about the toe up construction of these socks or deadly about their simple short row heel, but there are whirlpools- a simple stitch pattern winds its way across each instep and spirals up the leg of each sock.
Knitted Sock Heel Repair
I should have known better than to wear soft, fine merino and alpaca wool hand knitted socks with hiking boots. Very soon the fine wool was worn away and holes appeared. As these were a favourite pair of socks I thought about making a repair using the darning method. I confess, I've never repaired a pair of socks. Therefore, I did a quick search for darning instructions. While browsing various methods I came across a knitted heel option which looked so much better than a darning patch. The…
