Sidewinders: A PerpenSOCKular Pattern

The basic Sidewinders pattern is available for free in 6 serial installments: The Prologue, Act I, Act II, Act III, Act IV, and The Grand Finale.

On Mother's Day -- while the nona-boys made me laugh and cooked me dinner -- I knit my first sideways sock. I was simultaneously thrilled and distraught by the resulting sock. What a fabulous idea, but a lousy fit. This juxtaposition of emotions sent me whirling on a quest, a quest for a well-fit sideways sock. After much noodling, experimenting, and swatching I fixed upon a design that works for me. Perhaps you'll enjoy it as well.
