The link for the free pattern is not working. Apparently, Adobe wants me to redo it every day so I just took the link off of the blog. If I can figure out how to make it permanent I'll put it back up. For now, if you want the pattern just email me or use the directions from Liz's comment yesterday to copy it right from the blog post.
I was quite surprised to find a post on the Yahoo Knitlist today from someone who is not happy about the way I added a disclaimer at the end of the pattern. Seriously. If someone knows a lot more about copyright than I do and feels that the disclaimer is out of line, please let me know. It was never my intention to come off as being the inventor of the knitting techniques in the pattern. I had been unable to find the techniques together in one sock pattern and had requests to write them in pattern form. The disclaimer was added because it seems to be on every sock pattern, free or otherwise, that I have ever seen so I thought it might be a good idea. If it was inappropriate, I apologize. It was never my intent to profit from this pattern. If it helps others knit socks for people that have sensitive feet, I'm happy.
