Free pattern Friday: Business Casual

We seem to have a higher than usual number of sock knitters popping into the shop these days so I thought it would be nice to end the week with one of our favourite go-to sock patterns. What I love about Business Casual by Tanis Lavallee of Tanis Fiber Arts is that it lends itself beautifully to the use of tonal hand-dyed yarns.  The regular all-over cable pattern (faux-argyle!) creates a visually interesting texture that doesn’t compete with the depth of colour of the yarn –  allowing it to shine right through. Have you been hoarding a gorgeous single skein of hand-dyed sock yarn? Here’s a great reason to break it out!
