Vacillate (v.): To waver in mind, will, or feeling: Hesitate in choice of opinions or courses.

Traveling cables and changing textures Rise up this sock, representing my vacillation as I designed them.

Knit or purl? Left or right? Diamond or triangle?


Vacillate is part of the Rise Up collection - a group of designers taking inspiration from the same three stitch patterns and working them up in our own style!

Sizes S (M, L)

6.25 (7, 8)”/ 15.5 (17.5, 20) cm sock circumference
To fit 8 (9, 10)” / 20.5 (23, 25.5) cm in actual foot circumference

Vacillate is a toe-up sock that features an addictive cable and texture design with two heel options:

- a fleegle/strong heel (deep gusset, no short rows or picking up stitches)
- a gusset and faux heel flap (shallower gusset, imitates a traditional sock heel)

This pattern has been professionally tech edited and tested for clarity, accuracy, and fit.
