Christmas Cheer For You

cheertini socks

I finished a pair of socks just in time to wear them on Christmas Day 2009. Since the yarn is called “Christmas Cheertini” the timing couldn’t have been more perfect.

They pooled like a mo-fo but I kind of like it. It reminds me of garland on the Christmas tree. Or something. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, anyway.

And they are the perfect venue for showing you my awesome patent leather Dansko clogs – a Christmas present to me.

A girl has to take care of herself and new socks and shoes on Christmas day was my way of doing it this year.

They are my usual stockinette stitch picot edge socks and before you all moan and groan and ask about the pattern . . .

Carole’s Picot Edge Socks

That’s a pdf link right there and you can download the pattern and make your very own pair of picot edge socks.


I vowed that I would not post another finished pair of socks until this pattern was ready to go – hence the delay in posting my Christmas socks.

The pattern is free and just my way of saying Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Happy Valentine’s Day and everything other holiday from me to all of you – my faithful readers.

Hope you like it!

  1. The pattern looks great – and perfect for some self-striping yarn I’ve been contemplating pulling out of the stash. Thanks for it!

  2. Aww……that yarn looks like my favorite socks that I just blew a hole in. 🙁 Wonderfully comfortable socks to wear.

    That pattern is my favorite one to wear on my feet. 🙂

  3. Fun, fun color. And those patent leather clogs are classic. You’ll enjoy those for years. My picot socks are chugging along. I’m looking forward to wearing them soon.

  4. T hanks, Carole for sharing the pattern. I have
    a picot edge on my list for 2010 and now I have
    a sock pattern using it! Your photos are fantastic.

  5. Looks like I have another project to start! Love the clogs. I have a pair of Sanita clogs that are very similar. I love them!

  6. Thanks so much for the directions! I have been wanting to try a picot edge but it seemed so complicated. With your directions and pictures, I think I might be able to do it!! I am curious tho– how well do these socks stay up without ribbing at the top?? Always enjoy your blog by the way– just my first time to comment…

  7. Very nice! I’ve always thought pooling was kind of cool for some reason, at least when it makes a stripe all the way across like that. I must be weird or something.

    (Yes, I know that’s a tempting straight line. Try to restrain yourself.)

  8. Very pretty, and they go great w/ the new clogs! I looked at the pattern … looks like Greek to me, good thing we’re starting the knitting lessons soon 😉

  9. Thank you SO much for the lovely pattern that I have been patiently waiting for!! I have 4 days off over the weekend and I know I will be starting a new pair of socks!!! The WIP can wait!!!

  10. Just got a new skein of sock yarn -ready now to give the picot-edge sock pattern a go-thank you so much for the pattern!! 🙂

  11. Thank you SO much for this succinct and clear pattern. The photos are a big help, too. Downloaded and ready to go; all I need is the oomph to start because God knows there’s enough sock yarn in the stash. Which one to pick, which one to pick….

  12. Love the socks and the fantastic clogs! Aren’t Danskos the best?

    Thank you so much for the pattern! It’s so clearly laid out, and your manicure is fantastic!

  13. Congrats on publishing your pattern. I’m wearing my patent leather Danskos today. I love them. I just told B that I may need another pair.

  14. Yea! Thanks so much for the pattern! I’ve printed it off but I’m going to have to make myself wait until I finish the socks I started last year. This should give me the incentive to finish!

  15. At least the worst of the pooling is under those lovely clogs.

    Thanks for the pattern. Despite having knit over 40 pairs of socks, I’ve never tried picot edge.

  16. Thanks! The photos are very helpful. I have started a pair of picot socks once, and couldn’t quite get it….I think this will help a lot.

  17. Really nice, Carole! I caught a fleeting glimpse of them this morning — must have been on FB (it’s been a very busy morning, so there’s been no lingering, though I did see something about an unruly library patron!) — and thought WOW, Those are nice socks!! Your photos are WOW, too!!

  18. Thank you so much for the pattern – I am going to be trying it! That’s very sweet of you…

    And, the socks are pretty – very Christmasy!!!

  19. Lovely socks and clogs! Thank you so much for writing up your pattern and providing the great photos. This will be my next sock project:)

  20. Thanks for the pattern — I think that picot edge is really cool! I like to be able to see pictures as well as read the directions. Your socks always turn out really cute!

  21. Thanks for the pattern, Carole. I’ve been wanting to make a picot edge sock after seeing yours. They always look so pretty! I will certainly get to these – when I finish a few unfinished Christmas presents! Never again!!!
    I love your clogs, but am unfamiliar with the brand. Where do you get them? I have about 8 pairs of Clarks, don’t wear any other style, but think I need something more comfy.
    Keep up the great blogging!

  22. love those Christmas socks! And my daughter has the shiny Danskos just like yours (I keep threatening to steal them!) Good for you being good to yourself 😉
    and thank you for the pattern! yipppeee.
    I think this year might be the year I knit my very first plain stockinette socks.
