Welcome to October's Sock Subscription Pattern Inspiration Page! I'm so glad you're here!
October's Sock Yarn was inspired by fall berries - ripe, plump jewels gracing the branches of almost-bare trees. Hedges glowing with the bright orange of rosehips, the last dark purple blackberries gleaming in the sunlight. The promise of cold, crisp days with the golden sunshine that only fall can bring.
I hope you find a pattern you'd like to cast on - if you like to share, tag us on Instagram (@_makingstories)!

Our pattern recommendations for the October sock box:
It's no secret that Hanna Lisa adores knitting - and wearing - socks. The "Not-So-Vanilla Vanilla Socks" are the perfect canvas for showing off that gorgeous hand-dyed skein of yarn you've had in your stash forever, or for your first foray into all-natural sock yarns.
The pattern is graded to 5 sizes and comes with measuring instructions and a little calculation exercise to ensure the perfect, snug fit on your own foot. They're knit toe-up with a Fleegle's Heel - Hanna Lisa's absolute favorite heel to fit a medium-to-high instep.
There's nothing more comforting than a pair of cabled socks, if you ask me! They're wonderful to knit - you just want to get to that next cable crossing - and so cozy to wear.
Anushka's Oregano Socks are a great entry point for first-time cabled sock knitters and the perfect "just a bit more mindful" knitting project for advanced sock knitters. Knit from the cuff down, they feature elliptical cables set in ribbing, and a short-row heel with a gusset for a great fit.
I just couldn't resist these - they are too fun! Onion-like cables running down the front of the foot and back of the leg (hence the pattern name), set on reverse stockinette - how great of a nod to fall produce is that?
The Allium Cepa socks are knit cuff down and feature a heel flap and gusset - and can we talk for a second about how gorgeous that heel flap is?
