And then there were none
Knitters who purchase both And Then There Were… patterns (sock & [mitt]) will receive a 25% discount.
"And Then There Were None" is a cabled pattern inspired by the Agatha Christie novel of the same name. In the novel, ten people who had been involved in the death(s) of other human beings but either escaped notice or were not subject to legal repercussions, are tricked into coming to an island. Although they are the only people on the island, and cannot escape due to bad weather, each guest is killed in a manner seeming to parallel the deaths described in the nursery rhyme “Ten Little Indians”.
Mirroring the novel, the sock begins with 10 strands of cabling which intertwine and divide as they meander down the leg. Beginning on the back of the leg and one by one, the individual strands of cable are cut off, “killed” as it were, just like each guest on the island.
This pattern is part of an e-book series, The Agatha Christie Series, Volume 1
