So you have knit some sock patterns here and there, but you want something truly unique, something customized to your own aesthetic and style, whether you choose a whole new pattern, or build off an existing one. Here are some tutorials from Socktoberists that have done just that… and they give you tips on how you can do it too!
|Stacey took the well-known DNA cabled scarf pattern and adapted the cables to socks! She did lots of knitty math and came out with a beautiful sock for her sister, who works in the medical field. She kept copious notes and shares them all on a TUTORIAL on her blog! Check it out!|
Kristi at Fiber Fool is pretty darn amazing. This girl writes some stellar patterns, and knits and spins up a storm. She recently reposted a tutorial she wrote last year on how to make CLOG SOCKS. She has a thorough write-up, and some very helpful diagrams on her blog. Go over to her site and see the tutorial and her lovely patterns!

…and Maia has completely out done herself. She has created not only one tutorial – but THREE! – about how to design your own sock pattern. Each of the tutorials have detailed illustrations and photos like the one here, seen in her Part I tutorial:
All of these ladies have worked so hard to provide wonderful tutorials, and I want to thank you so much for doing so! You can thank them too by visiting their blog and commenting on their hard work!
PS–Loving this "future" blogging feature in WordPress! I can edit the timestamp and make the blog post whever I want! I wrote up this post about tutorials on Wednesday, and I am posting it on Friday! Live blogging will return after my exams are over! (Saturday evening)
