Pocket Full of Cloves has a simple to remember 8 round repeat, making this a fun to knit pattern. Perfect for when I’m sitting and gabbing with my grandmother, just engaging enough to keep my mind active as her dementia has her repeating the same story over and over, but simple enough where I can take notice when a new story surface.
Worked in the round, Pocket Full of Cloves contains written directions and a chart for the pattern stitch. Directions are for both cuff-down and toe-up. If you feel inclined to make 2 in the same direction, that’s completely acceptable, or one of each if you’re feeling particularly topsy-turvy! Pocket Full of Cloves features 4 sizes. You’ll also find a sock worksheet, so you know how to measure your foot to achieve a perfect fit. Pocket Full of Cloves has directions for an afterthought heel, but you may substitute whatever heel you enjoy using.
The pattern is written for the magic loop method for knitting socks, however, the pattern notes do contain details should you wish to use double pointed needles instead.
