Conquering Time and Space with Knitting

September 22, 2009

Another of those designs that has been rattling around in my brain is complete. I needed a sock pattern for my husband that was manly but not as boring to knit as the plain socks he generally prefers (He’s an accountant, he can’t help it.). Since I didn’t want to stab my eyes out with my knitting needles before I finished knitting for his outrageously long feet, I had to come up with something a little more interesting to knit than stockinette. I found my inspiration while catching up on episodes of my favorite television show.

Time Lord Sock

Even a time traveler needs something to keep his feet warm in the cold depths of space.

The little rectangles reminded me of the windows of that mysterious blue call box he uses for travel.

The toe forms a spiraling vortex reminiscent of time and space, so naturally the pattern is named for my favorite doctor.

The modular look is well suited for the man in your life but not out of place in a more feminine color. The stitch pattern is bold enough to stand up to many variegated yarns. The slightly asymmetrical stitch pattern helps break up pooling. The cuff has enough stretch to comfortably fit a number of leg widths.

Construction is top down with a pointed vortex toe that doesn’t require the kitchener stitch and that fits narrower feet or long toes exceptionally well.

Pattern is available as a download through Ravelry or in print from my etsy store.
