Rosie Sock Pattern, Knitcircus Summer 2010

My Rosie socks are published today, (yes, Ria, they were socks!) in Knitcircus Magazine Issue 10, Summer 2010. My favorite part of the pattern? Ribbing hidden beneath the cuff gives a snug fit.
As usual, there are some spectacular articles in there too, free for the reading, all 75 pages!.
-Great interviews with Cookie A. Susan B. Anderson and Wendy D. Johnson
-Recipes, sewing tutorials, and the things that make Knitcircus special.
-Book, yarn and tool reviews.
-and patterns.. loads and loads of patterns available, some as free downloads, all of them unique.

Here are the deets on Rosie:

Rosebuds peek through the briars in the colorfully textured cuff of these top-down socks. A cleverly fitted German heel (with garter stitch columns for close fit) and French toe make this sock something special. A small section of stranded knitting near the toe echoes the latticed design of the cuff.
