Product details

A flying buttress is a specific form of architecture most strongly associated with Gothic churches. The purpose of any buttress is to resist the forces pushing a wall outwards by redirecting them to the ground.

This pattern incorporates left and right buttresses, created by a simple 2/1 cable that are repeated on the front and back of each sock, making the leg symmetrical whether viewed from the front, back or sides. The buttresses are edged by a simple baby cable which continues down over the foot.

Two sizes are provided. The Women's Medium (CO 64 sts) is designed to fit a US size 7-9 foot. The Women's Large (or Mens Medium) (CO 72 sts) will fit womens sizes 9-11. A test knit Large comfortably fit a mens US size 11 foot.

The pattern as written incorporates a stocking stitch toe. However, the Womens Medium size could incorporate a further repeat of the Flying Buttress pattern through the toe. A chart for this option is also provided.
