Pattern of the Month

Ewe + Me Socks

This wooly knit sock pattern is a tribute to our fiber friend, the sheep! The socks are worked from the toe up so the happy ewe face can be duplicate stitched on with minimal fuss. The body of the sheep had a lightly textured appearance to imitate its wooly fleece. The socks have a contrasting shadow wrapped short row heel.

+Plus Level Members download this pattern for free through March 4, 2024.

This pattern was designed in collaboration with our friends from Ewe Ewe Yarns and they created a selection of Ewe + Me Socks Yarn Kits so you can knit your sock flock in a variety of traditional or whimsical colors.

A Note from Ellen

You probably already know that most of the knitting patterns in our shop have supplemental video tutorials that can be viewed on YouTube. However, if you are a paid member of the pack (with either a Basic or Plus level membership) you can watch all of those videos on our website without the ads and social media nonsense.

Simply type the pattern name into our website's search tool to find the lessons associated with your pattern. Then relax and enjoy the view!
