With a fresh approach to color and innovative use of shape, Susanne Sommer's knitwear designs are straightforward, graphic and modern, but always wearable & comfortable.
SOSU knitting patterns are easy to follow and fun to knit for beginners and experienced knitters alike.
Susanne specializes in two-color brioche and uses the technique to create reversible geometric designs.
Knit top-down (from cuff to toe) in stockinette and reverse stockinette stitch – half & half as the name suggests – with a classic heel flap and gusset construction and a rounded toe, these short socks are a simple go-to pattern with a little textural interest that lets hand-dyed and variegated sock yarn room to shine.
They knit up quickly and wear comfortably – the best combination!
The pattern is written for DPNs and circular needles / magic-loop.
