Mortimer. Why? Because Curt couldn’t handle wrapping his head around it as a sock pattern name lol.
Worked in the round, Mortimer contains written directions and a chart for the pattern stitch. Directions are for both cuff-down and toe-up. If you feel inclined to make 2 in the same direction, that’s completely acceptable, or one of each if you’re feeling particularly topsy-turvy! Mortimer features 4 sizes; Small, Medium, Large, & X-Large. You’ll also find a sock worksheet, so you know how to measure your foot to achieve a perfect fit. Mortimer has directions for an afterthought heel, but you may substitute whatever heel you enjoy using.
The pattern is written for the magic loop method for knitting socks, however, the pattern notes do contain details should you wish to use double pointed needles instead.
• US1 (2.25 mm) 32”-40” circular needles, or size required to obtain gauge. If preferred, four US1 (2.25 mm) double pointed needles, or size required to obtain gauge
• Tapestry needle
• Cable needle
• Scrap yarn
• 300-500 yds (275-458 m) fingering weight yarn (will vary depending on the length of your foot and leg)
