9 to 5 socks, Pattern Support

Nine to Five sock in Perspective

Heya! I can’t believe how many of you have downloaded the Nine to Five socks! The number astounds me and goes way higher than I could have predicted!

A few of you are having trouble with the download. If you’re having trouble, my advice is basically to click the link (in the post below) and accept the copyright information and walk away from your computer for a few minutes (more if your computer or connection is slow). The document is 3 pages, so it could take short bit to download.

Also, a few people have asked about the twist stitch described in the pattern. It’s kind of a hard thing to describe with words… so I present to you the following video!! Let me know if you like this and think that this kind of thing would be helpful in the future!

    The video is a great help. It looks like the same stitch is twining, which is used in the Conwy socks from Knitting on the Road. It doesn’t make sense until you try it with yarn and needles; trying to think it through didn’t work for me.

    Love the pattern!

    A picture is worth a thousand words! Recently someone asked me how to do this very st, so I know it can be confusing to people. I showed her how, but now I can direct people to this video as a resource. Thanks!

    Very cool pattern. I haven’t downloaded it, but I’ve bookmarked it.

    In case you didn’t see it, some of the traffic might be from the CRAFT Magazine blog – when I was catching up on my feeds last night, I noticed that they’d linked to you. :) Woo!

    Thanks for the video to help with the pattern. I had imagined the stitch correctly, but it’s a relief to see it done. I’m doing my sock with the new Shibui yarn. Love it.

    Thank you for giving us this amazingly beautiful sock pattern.
    I am used to toe-up patterns but will make an effort because I love your socks. I will show you mine when finished… probably later than sooner! :) xo from Switzerland

  11. 11 Jen July 9, 2007 at 8:52 am

    That is awesome!! I always have to see things actually done to figure things out, and that is a GREAT help!

    How do I get the pattern for the 9 to 5 sock

  13. 13 Serena August 5, 2007 at 10:58 am

    I didn’t understand the instructions, looking at this video makes sense to me, better then you can describe with a lot of words. Thank you!

    Thanks for the tutorial. I dig the soundtrack!

  15. 15 tantej September 18, 2007 at 11:40 pm

    A newish knitter and first-time Sockdown! participant thanks you heartily and humbly for the extra assistance with the pattern. Casting on tonight, fingers crossed!

  17. 17 Boyd S. January 25, 2008 at 2:23 pm

    That was most helpful! I am just starting another sock pattern that uses this same stitch and couldn’t get my head wrapped around how it works so someone sent me to your site. These kinds of demos are incredibly useful!

    Hallo, darf ich die pdf von 9 go 5 socks erhalten?
    Wenn ich es lade, dann kann ich es nicht öffnen.
    have fun

  19. 19 B. Allen March 2, 2008 at 4:21 pm

    Thanks for the video–I will be completing these using 2 circular needles. So beautiful in solids!

  20. 20 P Harper March 2, 2008 at 5:52 pm

    Great sock, and an interesting stitch pattern! Just thought you’d want to know that SocknittersSAM yahoogroup has voted on this pattern for the March/April, 2008 KAL.
    Also designed in solid color, I’m knitting mine with an Opal variegated.

  21. 21 afc350 May 31, 2008 at 8:14 am

    I am a new knitter. No small projects for me! Am doing this pattern for my first pair of socks. Can’t wait to get started. Thanks for sharing your pattern.

  22. 22 HB June 5, 2008 at 1:36 am

    These will be my first socks!
    Love the twisted stitch thing, thanks for the video!

  23. 23 Yavanna June 12, 2008 at 3:05 pm

    Thank you THANK YOU thank you!! OMG I spent three days doing the twist wrong! It so much easier than the description makes it sound. Now I have to frog my work…but I now know I’m doing it right!!

  24. 24 Beatriz August 12, 2008 at 4:01 pm

    Yay. I’ve had this pattern in my ravelry queue for months and kept thinking that one day I needed to figure out that twisting cable so I could cast on for your pattern. Thanks for sharing the video!

    Hi, dear Nicole, I want to thank you for the video. It is like meant to be. Only this week I found out what the linen stitch is but was struggling. Then I was looking for Socks on Ravelry ( I am halalsilks ) and I found your lovely 9 to 5 ones. I am a sort of beginner at sock knitting. I have read dozens of patterns but my leg/ feet are swollen so I can’t ever get a good fit.
    The video here helped me to be encouraged enough to see I have support to try to knit them.
    I just have to find the right yarn.
    So by medium would this be like a woman size 8 1/2 shoe size?
    thank you very much for your generosity and check out my videos and collections of fiber and knit videos on my youtube at http://www.youtube.com/halalsilks
    blessings, grace

    Great video. I found it really helpful. Thanks for the pattern. I think it will be the next pattern I try. As soon as I finish the unending size 13 pair I’m making for my guy. Zzzzzzz.

  27. 27 Tina January 12, 2010 at 4:17 pm

    Mein Englisch ist nicht so gut, aber mit dem Video kann ich das Muster verstehen :-))

    Liebe GRüße von Tina

    Hi there – Lovely pattern but I can’t find a link for the download!!


  29. 29 Selena7092 November 11, 2010 at 7:27 am

    Merci pour la vidéo : c’est beaucoup plus facile à comprendre surtout en anglais. Et le Left Twist ???
    Thank you very much

    bwahahahahha….actually, loved the tute, also.

    What a marvelous post! I am just a beginner in community management/marketing media and trying to learn how to do it well – resources like this article are highly helpful. As our company is based in the U.S., it’s all a little bit new to us. The example above is something that I worry about as well, how to show your own real enthusiasm and share the fact that your product is useful in that case.

    So great! Thanks very much! I am a visual learner rather than written. :-)

    Hi outstanding website! Does running a blog such as this
    take a massive amount work? I have no knowledge of programming however I was hoping to start
    my own blog soon. Anyway, should you have any ideas or techniques for new blog owners please share.
    I know this is off topic but I simply needed to ask.

  35. 35 Linda Masterson Rogers May 7, 2014 at 12:15 pm

    Nicole, I just found your 9-5 sock pattern on Ravelry and want to knit it. I am very new to knitting patterned socks and I hope you can explain to me a certain part of the pattern. “Round 1 –*P2, (k2tog, but do not slip off the needle. Put the right needle between the two stitches just knit together and knit the first stitch again. Drop both stitches off the left needle.) twice. * repeat through the round.” I understand everything except “twice”. I appreciate your help! Linda
