Nutty Creations


A sock design for’s regular sock club this time! Inspired by Monet’s paintings of the Rouen Cathedral, Contrefort reflects some of the grand architectural elements seen in the European cathedrals.


These socks are knit from the cuff down using Trekking Maxima.  Trekking XXL happens to be one of my favorite work horse sock yarns.  I will be adding Maxima to that same list.  I think it is the same yarn base, but in fun tweedy, self-striping colorways.  The pattern itself is straight forward, suitable for the advanced beginning sock knitter.  It is a basic lace that works well with the stripes.

Contrefort Side

Currently this pattern is available only to members of’s sock club.  I will make it available to the general public some time late this summer.
