It feels like ages since I have released a new pattern.
"Gitter" is the German word for "grid" or "lattice". This reverse stockinette stitch lattice design on a sockinette background is a simple 10-row, 10-stitch repeat that makes for a quick, fun knit.
Gitter is knit from the cuff down with an Eye of Partridge heel and Kitchener Stitched toe. The Gitter stitch pattern is identical whether it is right-side-up or upside-down so it is easily adaptable to being knit toe-up.
The sample is knit in medium width (8 1/2 inches/ 21 1/2 centimetre). Pattern instructions are also included for narrow (7 1/2 inch/ 19 centimetre) and wide (10 inch/ 25 centimetre) widths. Foot length is totally customizable.
You will need approximately 400 yards/ 365 metres of fingering weight yarn (sample is knit using Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in 'icehouse'), size 2.25mm/ US size 1 needles (or size needed to obtain gauge), 2 stitch markers and a tapestry needle.
Skills required for this pattern are knit, purl, decreases, Kitchener stitch and working in the round.
Gitter is 50% off until Midnight EST on July 1st, 2015. You can buy it on Ravelry. You can also download a pattern preview.
