It’s been a while – but finally I have a new sock pattern for you! Tilt!
Tilt socks are toe-up style crochet socks with a simple slanted cable pattern that is reversed on the opposite foot. This results in a beautiful unisex sock that everyone will love. Gorgeous in solid and tonal yarns, this sock is also a charming pattern in variegated, handpainted or long striping yarns.
Written in 4 foot widths, the sock is easily customizable to foot length and leg height just by adding more or less of the 2 pattern row repeats once the slanting cables are established. Notes are included to help create a larger leg for those who may have thicker calves than others.
Here are the main details
Small: 6.5 inches up to 7.5 inches
Medium: 7.5 inches up to 8.5 inches
Large: 8.5 inches up to 9.5 inches
X-Large: 9.5 inches up to 10.5 inches
Regular Sock: 275 [300, 330, 356] yards fingering weight / sock yarn
Knee-High Socks: 410 [425, 465, 534] yards fingering weight / sock yarn
NOTE: Purchase an extra 100 yards if you plan to make the knee-highs and have a thicker calf body that you will need to increase the leg around. This will be more than enough extra yardage for all sizes and lengths.
Model Uses: Cloudborn Fibers Highland Superwash Sock Twist (80% Superwash Fine Highland Wool / 20% polymide; 1.8 oz / 50g = 178 yds / 163m) in colorways Stormy Skies (regular socks) and Shaela Heather (knee-highs)
2.5 mm and 3.0 mm crochet hooks, or sizes needed for gauge
20 esc = 4 inches (blocked). Always check gauge for accurate fit.
Originally Tilt socks were only available as part of a kit on Craftsy. (and yes the kit is still available). But now I can offer the pattern only for those who do not want to purchase a full kit.
As most of you know, I love socks! Tilt socks are no different. I wanted to create a really easy and fun sock pattern from the toe up that fit well and use simple cable work. I believe Tilt fits the bill on that! With 4 sizes to chose from, and using a heel flap and gusset heel, you are sure to make this sock fit you or your loved ones in any way! the pattern includes charts for every part of the sock, and full color photos to help you get the job done. And as always, I fully support my patterns 100%. And it is value priced for 8 full pages!
