Another BBF sock pattern debuts: behold the Emmett socks.
To paraphrase a line from a dreadful soap commercial, they are manly, yes, but the ladies will like them, too. They feature a classic cable rib pattern with a lot of stretch. The pattern is sized for unisex adult S/M/L and there is a lot of flexibility in fit due to the ribbing. There is a lot of room in between sizes because of that stretch, which means it will fit feet of many different sizes.
I like these socks a lot because they take advantage of a stitch pattern that is relatively easy to work and to memorize, but create a really good-looking end product that is suitable for men and women. (In case you're wondering, these socks were named after one of my great-grandfathers, who ended up marrying a woman named "Emma" -- isn't that cute?)
You can download the pattern via Patternfish here or via Ravelry here. Hard copies will be available at the BBF on-line shop in time for my next update. (And since it's a huge update of CashSock, you can try it out with a brand-new skein of yarn! I've got lots of great colors, including some spring-ier shades and some richer ones.)
Super shout-out of thanks to Laura Grutzeck, for her awesome photography both here and of Gitte's Socks.
