It's hard for me to believe, but this year's TTL Mystery Sock will be our 5th! The Mystery Sock KAL is a favorite of mine because each year I make new friends and reconnect with old friends. I hope you'll join us this year. I'm very excited about the design. Read on for the details.
TTL Mystery Sock 2012 Pattern Details (help us spread the word by favoriting/queuing the pattern on Raverly.)
Size: S [M, L]
Finished Measurements: 6.5 [7.5, 8.5] circumference at leg and foot. Foot length is customizable.
Yarn: Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock, 80% Superwash Wool / 20% Nylon, 435 yds per skein, color: Tarheel Blue, 1 skein
Needles: 1 set US 1.5 (2.5mm) circular needles.
1 set US 1.5 (2.5mm) double pointed needles (dpns) or size to obtain gauge
Gauge: 34 sts & 47 rows = 4”/10cm in Stockinette St, always take the time to check gauge
Other Materials: stitch markers, tapestry needle, cable needle (CN).
The sock is worked in the round from the cuff down.
Select your size based on the circumference of your foot and leg. The overall foot length is customizable.
Gauge will impact your size selection and the amount of yarn used. Since socks are meant to fit with negative ease choose a size that is 1-2” smaller than your foot and leg circumference. The sample sock which measures 7.5” relaxed fits my 9” circumference foot nicely.
A Note About Yarn Choice: This sock has a lot of stitch pattern detail. These details will show up best if worked in a solid or semi-solid yarn. Medium to lighter colors will also show the stitch pattern best.
One new clue will be released each week throughout the month of January, 2013. The release dates are:
Intro & KAL Details: December 17th
Cuff: January 1st
Leg: January 8th

Help Us Keep Each Week’s Clue a Surpirse
We will have “Spoiler Alert” threads for each week where you may post photos of your progress. Please be considerate of other knitters and only post photos in the appropriate spoiler alert thread.
Many knitters enjoy the Mystery and choose not to peek at the spoiler threads until after they have knit that week’s clue. Please place a “Spoiler Alert” image as your first image on your Ravelry project page.
Please post all of your questions in the Through the Loops Ravelry forum. If you have a question someone else may well have the same question.
HAVE FUN! I look forward to seeing your socks and joining the discussion!
