This is the 4th sock in my eBook, CAT’S SWEET TOMATO HEEL SOCKS, and it introduces the Padded Sweet Tomato Heel for the first time.

A Padded Sweet Tomato Heel curves the traditionally straight columns of heel stitch into a beautiful shell-like cup. I suggest first trying one of the other patterns in this collection in order to appreciate the simplicity of the original Sweet Tomato Heel method. Then, adding columns of slipped stitches to create the Padded Heel will seem natural.

I am always on the look-out for really great sock yarn. It has to be springy (to produce elastic fabric and be ergonomically kind to the knitter), have plenty of twist and three...

If you wear an Anemone Hat, you will have to get used to being stopped by strangers who are smiling at you and want to tell you how much they like your hat. In the Pacific Northwest, I wear my hats fall through spring, and they inspire ten times as many comments as anything else I have ever designed. An Anemone Hat can provide all these things for you: cozy warmth, beauty, a non-prescription anti-depressant, and a good-hair day.

The pattern includes the Everyday Anemone as well as a heavier version called the Arctic Anemone, which also has a picot edge variation.

Both versions give you the choice of Moebius brim or a simple circle brim. If you’ve never made a Moebius before, you’ll find detailed instructions, illustrations, and a live link to my Moebius video tutorial (which has well over a quarter of a million views) to start you on your way. The pattern also includes a live link to my tendril video tutorial. Designer Annie Modesitt taught me to make tendrils — thank you,...

These socks are the first sock featured in my eBook, Cat’s Sweet Tomato Heel Socks. You may buy the patterns as singles for $6 each, or for $20 you can buy the whole eBook and will receive all of the designs (one of which is exclusive to the eBook, not to be released as a single).

These wildlife socks are sized for babies through adults. The bouncy tendrils that form the mane are a bit addictive to make and are worked in place as you knit. And since no two zebras are alike, one toe starts with black, the other white. You’ll have enough yarn to knit two pairs for a child or one for an adult.

Sizes: baby (child’s sm, lg; woman’s sm, med, lg; man’s med, lg). Finished circumference: 5 (51/2, 6; 7, 71/2, 8; 9, 10)” or 13 (14, 15; 18, 19, 20; 23, 25) cm. To allow for...

These socks, which are the 8th sock in my eBook, Cat’s Sweet Tomato Heel Socks, exist because of Danny Herbert, who was my fifth-grade student long ago, and is now a professional wildlife-whisperer photographer (and the photographer for this book). I was admiring his bluebird photos, which are astonishing both for the rarity of bluebirds where we live and for the miracle of one hovering before his lens (except that Danny has this sort of thing happen a lot) when he said, “Hey, wouldn’t it be fun to Photoshop a bluebird flying off with a sock?”

In that split second the notion of this sweet little sock appeared in my head and took priority over all my other designs-in-progress. In response to requests from readers who’ve let me know they’d love to knit...

All my life I have loved the word, Dardanelles, which is the name of the waterway that connects the Aegean Sea and the Sea of Marmara. I have finally found something that deserves the name: this graceful, lively crescent of knitting that will flow around your neck in any way you wish to arrange it.

The knitting is easy to follow and deeply relaxing, with just enough cabling in the center to keep you mesmerized. Like the currents that rest at slack tide and gradually quicken to rush through the Dardanelles at their peak, the knitting seems to go faster and faster because you work fewer and fewer stitches as you approach the tip. The process is so soothing that I knit three in a row.

The pattern includes a live link to my Youtube...

This Moebius cowl starts with the Mohair Loop yarn alone, is joined by Wooly Feathers, and when the Mohair Loop runs out, it continues with just the Wooly Feathers to make a stunning accessory that appears to have a halo around the border.

This pattern, along with others, helps fund research that will put an end to chemotherapy. The never-ending graceful flow of a Moebius mirrors Dr. Krag’s cancer research, whose lab at the University of Vermont Medical School is receiving all proceeds from this pattern and others curated by CastOffChemo.org. Dr. Krag and his research team are poised to begin clinical trials of a treatment that uses the body’s own immune system, eliminating the harmful...

These indoor boots will thrill an imaginative child or adult. With these 2 particular yarns held together, the boots quickly felted to a pliant yet sturdy felt. To substitute, choose wool yarns that are not superwash. I combined a bulky wool with a worsted; 3 strands of worsted held together would produce a similar weight. Gauge must be significantly looser than usual to produce good felt. To achieve a great fit, you will energetically coax the boots toward the desired shape and size every few minutes during the felting process. To protect against “iceskating” on smooth floors, consider coating the soles with fabric paint, or purchase Suede Slipper Soles, made by Fiber Trends, and sew them on after...

These socks are the second sock featured in my eBook, Cat’s Sweet Tomato Heel Socks..

Hidden Treasure Pocket Socks may be knit toe-up or top-down, are easily fitted to any shape foot, and are a good introduction to the Sweet Tomato Heel (you can always leave off the pockets if you wish; then you will have a simple ribbed sock). If you make all four pockets, you can actually fit a cell phone, credit cards, and cash in your socks, and won’t need to carry a purse. The hidden pockets use the easy insertion method from my 2009 book, Personal Footprints for Insouciant Sock Knitters, and may be worked with leftover yarn.

My Sweet Tomato Heel emerged last winter after several days of sitting beside the wood stove with my mother while trying to fiddle my way towards a new...

These socks are the fifth sock featured in my eBook, Cat’s Sweet Tomato Heel Socks.

The Hither & Yon Socks are an easy knit, even if you’ve never added beads to knitting before (I include a video tutorial). The stitch texture is equally beautiful without the beads, as you can see in the video, so do leave off the beads if you prefer. The socks shown here feature clear beads on the front (which take on the color of the yarn) and multi-color beads on the back (a surprise for passersby). You could, of course, use one color everywhere. You can choose the toe-up (page 2) or top-down (page 6) version. If you enjoy working two socks at a time on two circular needles or one long circular needle, instructions starting on page 8 will show you how to knit any Sweet...

La Capa and DeColores, a cape and pair of half-sleeves, may be worn alone or together. The knitting is simple and serene, and the yarn, Skacel HiKoo™ Llamor, is spun of kitten-soft yet cougar-strong baby llama and is the distillation of more than a year of fiber communion between me, my brother Jim “Pecos” Petkiewicz, and a beloved Peruvian yarn whisperer friend who shares her insights with us during our trips to Peru.

The random depth of LaCapa’s rings makes for relaxed knitting and subtly animates the garment. The color rings end with a steady rhythm of eyelets, each one paired with a knit or decrease, to grow the circumference until it suits you.

The colors marching around the DeColores half-sleeves are random, which adds grace and makes knitting more fun. Slipped...

These socks are the third sock featured in my eBook, Cat’s Sweet Tomato Heel Socks.

While I was teaching at Needlework Unlimited in Minneapolis, Minnesota, they received their first shipment of a locally hand-dyed Blue-faced Leicester sock yarn. Hardly a skein of this seductive yarn was left by the end of my workshops. It’s slightly over-spun (which bodes well for durability) and has lovely stitch definition. The moonlit colors inspired this delicate, lacy sock, which includes instructions on fitting a larger calf.

Please join my new group, Cat’s Sweet Tomato Heels, for discussion and answers to any questions you may have.

The seed stitch heart design on these socks is simple to follow, and the combination of wool and silk ensures that your feet will be warm and your socks long-lasting. The yarn is one of many varieties hand-dyed by the talented Julie Packard right in the back room of her shop Island Wools, here on San Juan Island, Washington, where I am so very lucky to live. If you ever visit the island, you can find her shop filled with tempting yarns right at the ferry landing.

The pattern includes complete instructions for my Sweet Tomato Heel.

Sizes: woman’s sm/med (woman’s lg; man’s med, lg). Finished circumference: 7- 71/2 (8; 9, 10)” or...

This is one of 2 “Menagerie” sock designs in my eBook, Cat’s Sweet Tomato Heel Socks. Menagerie socks use a smocked ribbing technique which is easy to learn and perform.

This technique, which I first used in a published design in my 2009 book, Personal Footprints for Insouciant Sock Knitters, is one of my favorite techniques to pass on to knitters.

The key is mirror symmetry, which harmonizes whimsical movements and renders them elegant. You really can ignore my charts and spontaneously smock columns together as the mood strikes you.

Your reward will be a unique design that is balanced and sparkling with life instead of predictability. If I...

These very warm socks knit up quickly and are perfect for playing in the snow or hiking across a parking lot with a bag full of good things for dinner. You may choose to knit the knee-highversion or keep going for a thigh-high version, which may be worn pulled up or slouching down. An optional purl design on the top of the foot mirrors the colorwork. The yarns you see come from two wonderful yarn companies, one in Montana and one in Wyoming, each run by a pair of women. Their yarns and colorways are inspired by the breathtaking landscapes where they live. The blue-green yarn, Fusion, was grown and spun by Mountain Meadows and dyed by Mountain Colors. I love it when yarn companies join hands like this; it is...

This is a fresh new take on my Coriolis architecture, which first appeared in my book, New Pathways for Sock Knitters. This design offers a menu of choices for the leg: a diagonal ribbing can follow the Coriolis band from ankle to cuff, or the diagonal ribbing can begin later, a few inches before the top of the leg. For a Sweet Coriolis in its purest form, omit the rib altogether.

I think the Sweet Tomato Heel offers the best of all foundations for the Coriolis design and am very pleased to offer this new variation.

This is the ninth sock in my eBook, Cat’s Sweet Tomato Heel Socks.

Pattern includes live links to my video tutorials: 1. How to create a face opening with flawless corners and 2. Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind-0ff, so the opening is elastic and ready to stretch or bounce back.

When I agreed to teach at the Vogue Knitting Live event in in New York City in January 2011 and everyone I talked to warned me I would freeze, it frightened me. In defense, I designed this versatile cowl. On a mild day, it can be worn with the hood pulled back, or on an especially brutal winter day, the opening becomes a slit, exposing only the eyes. On a merely cold day, the lower half of the opening tucks softly under the chin, keeping the head, ears, and neck cozy. I wore it with just...
