A stitch pattern resembling herringbone weave helps to blend the colors of handpainted yarn; the bold ribs add stretch for a more forgiving fit. This versatile unisex pattern may well become one of the go-to sock patterns in your repertoire.

For those who scroll to the bottom right off: I used my updated version of Adobe problems. Some folks' security blocks downloads... Errata are already included in the pattern, per the post of 05-22-2009 8:25 PM; see the little "a" in the file name: "05-22-2009 9:00 PM You'll know if the PDF name is Herringbone_Rib-a.pdf" Thank you for the pattern.

Thank you for the pattern and the quick inclusion of errata. This pattern will make the next pair of socks for my husband or son less boring. I've only done a basic pattern for them until now. Sandi, please show us a picture of that cute baby hat! I really enjoy your input in the newsletter too. I share so many of the same 'problems' as you. Should I start that scarf? Or should I finish these socks? And so on, and so on ....

just downloaded with no problems as usual. I save to documents for retrieval later. I also checked out KellieN' link for corrections, look like it is included in the pattern, but just in case I'll save that too.

Hi, from Australia, don't usually have any problems with downloading your files but this one - the updated PDF is a no go! The file type isn't recognised.

You'll know if the PDF name is Herringbone_Rib-a.pdf

Here is the errata page for the whole book: These socks are on page 64. If it doesn't work, go to Interweave's main site, go to books, then corrections, then knitting, then Knitting Socks with Handpainted Yarn, then page 64. Here is the link copied from that page. It looks the same, but it works for me-maybe there is an extra space up at the top of the page.

Sandi, I've been away doing classes and today is the first time I've been able to take the time to open a Knitting Daily email in aaaaages. I don't care if the errata link doesn't work yet - I think your writing is so fabulous it more than makes up for such a tiny detail. I can be patient and wait for the corrected PDF. Thanks again for your delightful writing - it/you brighten my day! Cheers from the sunny Sunshine Coast of BC. Wendy HT

Not even going to try to print this. The errata link doesn't work. Please let us know when the pattern is complete and workable.

FYI - The errata link takes you to an Exchange log on page and not to a pdf download prompt.

Thanks for the pattern! One can never have enough sock patterns and this one being 'unisex' is a keeper. You just never know when a pattern will come in handy, and it seems with this pattern, I've got options when it comes to last minute gifts.
