Pre-release: The Big Four socks

I've decided to do a pre-release of The Big Four while it is being tech edited. (It has already been test knit.) For a limited time, the pattern is $3.50 while it is being tech edited. The final version will be released around mid-February for $4.50.

The Big Four is a cabal of global super villains against whom Hercule Poirot pits his wits in a series of vignettes in the novel The Big Four, by Agatha Christie. Who are the Big Four? Will Poirot be able to bring them to justice or will he meet his end at their hands?

The Big Four pattern is an endless repetition of squares nested within each other and outlined by cables How many 4-sided shapes are there in each sock? That’s a mystery for you to solve.

E-book Details:
This pattern is part of an e-book series, The Agatha Christie Series, Volume 2 (The Poirot Collection). Follow along as I create designs inspired by Agatha Christie novels featuring Hercule Poirot.

This e-book represents a savings over purchasing the patterns separately. And the earlier you buy, the more you save. Patterns will be delivered approximately every 6 weeks, beginning January 2014. Your Ravelry library will automatically be updated with the new patterns.
Buy in January & February 2014: $15
Buy in March & April 2014: $19
Buy in May & June 2014: $23

  1. This is a fun pattern to knit. I love the way the little squares appear and then get boxed in by magic. Great pattern Mo.
