One in a while we designers have to admit a big secret…
We didn’t get it right the first time.
Or at least, we could have done it a touch better.
That’s how I’ve always felt about my Candied Crossbones socks. While they’ve been the most popular crochet sock pattern I’ve designed, to date, a few things irked me after awhile.
The yarn wasn’t the right yarn for the design, the heel was an (GASP!) afterthought style, and the yardage didn’t work for most. Last year, I was contacted by Craftsy to work on a couple of kits featuring their new yarn, however this meant I needed to restitch the socks.
It was the perfect opportunity to change things up!
That’s exactly what I did!
Introducing the NEW and IMPROVED Candied Crossbones Sock Pattern!
These socks are worked from the cuff down, just like the classic design! The cuff is a bit shorter to save on yardage (a concern for some crocheters) and I changed the heel to an afterthought heel. The body is still in extended single crochet with a star toe.
What’s all this mean?
A new and improved fit that works for a wider number of crocheters! The sizing is for Small, Medium, and Large but making adjustments is super easy, and I encourage you to do so!
Don’t fret, if you want the afterthought heel instructions and the classic full length leg, you’ll still have access to the original pattern! So, it’s like getting two patterns for the price of one!
