Catoosa Socks, a Free Sock Knitting Pattern

Free sock knitting pattern with tutorials from Banana Moon Studio #sockknitting #freesockknittingpatterns

Catoosa Socks is a free sock knitting pattern from Banana Moon Studio! I have tutorial videos in the works to help you through the cast on, the heel flap, heel turn, gusset, and toe.

These socks have a simple but striking texture through the leg and instep. The pattern features a traditional heel, and a gathered toe (don’t even get me started on how much a hate grafting!).

Processing…
Success! You’re on the list.

These beautiful socks are made in a wonderful, environmentally-friendly yarn from Ancient Arts Yarns! Revival is a yarn that uses reclaimed fibers. The fibers in this yarn would normally be considered waste at the mill and thrown away, but instead they are captured and spun into this great yarn! You choose to help reduce waste by using it! Revival is hand-dyed by Ancient Arts dyer, Caroline Sommerfeld, in Canada. Check out all the glorious colors available from Ancient Arts! Click here!
