Thank you all for your kind words. There was no pattern for this, but here is a very crude diagram of the easy shaping of the pieces. Very crude!

Knit in hurdle stitch with ella Rae classic superwash. Shown with a sterling cloak clasp from Scotland, but will mostly be worn open over a tweed waistcoat.

Both examples of Fair Isle knitting are fabulous...which I hope I can accomplish someday. My floats are messy and often too tight!! You both inspire me to keep trying. May I ask if you find yarn weight and needle size significant? And also 'how' you carry the yarns, eg. with both hands, over one hand? Continental or American style. I'm a thrower trying to learn Continental. Thanks.

I knit fair isle using both hands. I try to I employ patterns that do not require long floats, but if so I secure the floats every fourth stitch.

Here is a sample of my fair isle knitting. It shows the sleeves outside and inside. Hope this helps.

I suggest that use #5 needles and follow the instructions for 48 stitches. The length of the leg and foot are up to you and the measurements of the foot you are knitting for.

Hi Jen! Use this chart and pattern guide. Your gauge with worsted weight will probably have you use the pattern for 47 stitches. Insert the numbers into my basic sock pattern and you are good to go.

The Cable Guy just keeps bobbling along! Lots of texture there in a wonderful design. πŸ‘πŸ‘

Fair Isle has less or no elasticity as compared to plain knitting. It also doubles the bulk.
If you use fair isle in socks I suggest that you only employ it only in the leg section and use more stitches, that can be reduced before the start of the heel. The foot is best knit plain to accommodate fit in shoes.
For a normal sock of 60 stitches I increase that number to 72 to work fair isle in the leg. This is then reduced to 60 at the start of the heel flap.
Knitting inside out may give better tension to your fair isle, but it will not give you enough elasticity required in a sock. You really require more stitches!

One 100 gr skein of fingering weight yarn will produce a tasseled fling...a fun accessory that is a shawl/scarf mix.

My original posting of the pattern is here:

The pastels is Tofutsies and the other two are Knit Picks Stroll fingering hand-painted.

You knit perfect socks as always. I don’t know about the color purple but you could wear them with grey pants and they would look nice. Question: Why do you prefer a short cuff rather than 2” inch? I will be knitting your cable socks soon and am debating the short cuff versus the 2”.

Than you once again.

I find the one inch cuff to be enough ribbing at the top of the sock. It’s a matter of choice though....2 inches would also be fine.

Not sure about the design of this color pattern. What do you think?
