Corded: anniversary edition

It was about 1 year ago that MagKnits closed its doors. The decision left me scrambling to re-format and re-distribute my patterns, all at an impossibly inconvenient time: I had just started a new job! Picovoli quickly landed at knotions, since it's a pretty long pattern that I simply didn't have the time to tweak. I was thrilled to have Savannahchik Jody do the dirty work for me :). Odessa was a breeze to paste into Illustrator and distribute via Ravelry. Jaywalker was more tricky, but for a long while I had wanted to combine the original and the extended size versions, so I grit my teeth and delved in. It, too, is now available through Ravelry.

Corded, the little baggie knit out of 1 skein of Noro Daria suffered the worst outcome. I think I simply ran out of steam, and then kept procrastinating because I didn't receive too many inquiries about the now-defunct pattern.

To my surprise, however, even though the number of Corded pattern requests was low, they continued to trickle in, all year long! So, I finally decided to devote a few hours to this project, to re-format it all nice and new, and to re-release it back into the wild!

Ladies and gentlemen, introducing Corded! Familiar to some, a new face for others, now a free Ravelry download. Enjoy!

If you do not have Ravelry access, please e-mail me for a copy of the pattern.

I think I'm one of those for whom this is a new face, but I'm intrigued. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for the free pattern. Looks cute!

I see this yarn frequently and wonder "...geez what could I make with that?", and now I know!

thanks for all the work to keep your patterns available!

I remember this one! Thanks for re-releasing it.

I love this pattern. It was because of this design that I found your blog. I had purchased some Daria and searched the internet for some pattern ideas (long before our beloved Ravelry). I found your designs and ultimately your blog.

Thanks for redoing the pattern; I believe there is still some Daria in my stash......


That was a stunner, when MagKnits up and quit, especially before I'd printed out some patterns I coveted. Thanks for making yours re-available. (Made so far: several Odessas and one pair Jaywalkers.)

Thanks for the pattern, it's cute. I bought 3 different skeins of Daria ......just because. Now, I can actually make something that shows it off. BTW, my jaywalker socks always get rave reviews!

Thanks for the story about what you came to do with your Magknits patterns. I still haven't figured out to do with the one I wrote! I'll probably take your lead and fix it to be a Ravelry download ...

Thank you so much! I have the yarn, and have been anxious to try the pattern.

(P.S. I hope your new job is going well.)

off to add to my queue

Thanks! I just happen to have 2 skeins in my stash!

THANKS for posting this. I really like Daria, but had never seen a pattern that I liked for this. AND THANKS FOR THE EXTENDED SIZES JAYWALKERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have large feet and and many regular sock patterns would not fit me.!

Thank you! I was sad to see Magknits go.

Thank you! I had always wanted to make this and now I think I finally have the right yarn for it.

That reminds me that somewhere I have a bag I made out of a skein of Daria multiple years ago that still needs some finishing work! Another weekend project for the spring.

Thank you very much for this !

I am also very sorry that MagKnits isn't online anymore ....

Thank you so much for the pattern. I really love this little bag!

Way cute bag! Thanks for making the pattern available.
Just wanted to let you know that I have found your how-to posts very valuable. I just finished wrestling with a pair of socks, and used your combined method for the 2-color Fair Isle style, as well as the "pretty" heel-flap stitch pick-up!

oooh, i have never seen this one before! i love that noro yarn. i think that it's perfect for a purse.

Thank you for the extended sizes on Jaywalkers! I am making a pair right now but they might have to go to my daughter because my feet are kind of big (which makes her happy).

I have a hank of this in my stash... I think it is destiny!
