This pattern is available for free.

This pattern was jointly designed, written and edited by Jeny Staiman and Brenda Dayne.

We offer this pattern in multiple weights and directions! The knitty pattern is cuff down, written for both fingering and sport weight yarn, cuff down. The attached download is an alternate toe up version.

River Severn features classic sock and design elements, hybridized to make the sock a faster and tidier knit. The 1/1 crosses are worked in two swift motions and slipped off the needle together, rather than moving stitches around before working them. The heel is a slightly rounded square heel, which conforms better to the foot than either a round or square heel.

Jeny has shared a blog post about the collaboration experience, and Brenda’s latest podcast will be available to everyone shortly.

Errata: descriptions in the pattern notes for 1/1 LC and 1/1 RC are accidentally swapped. It should read as follows:

  • 1/1 RC: K second st, k first st, slip both sts off needle.

  • 1/1 LC: K second st tbl from behind, k first st, slip both sts off needle.
