sinusoida, aka the never-ending round — lyos september 2009

6 Sep


Pattern: Sinusoida, aka The Never-ending Round, by loutheperson knits

Yarn: Chi by Natural Dye Studio, 100 g/ 400 m (80% merino/ 20% bamboo)

Needles: 2.5 mm

These socks were inspired by my love of patterns and charts that never appear to end while you are working them! It’s that strange hypnotic place that seems to occur in every pattern, where time stands still and you still seem to have an awful lot of yarn left.

Sinusoida is the Polish word for the concentrated sinusoid: the continuous trajectory of a line as it curves across a plane. The same logical yet organic progression is reflected here in a stitch pattern that rewrites our usual conception of working ‘in the round’!


‘Sinusoida’ is worked from the toe up, featuring a short-row toe and a triangular decreased heel. The chart is worked over the foot and across the ankle then the never-ending round begins! Just keep following the spiral of the stitches, until the leg reaches its desired height.

‘Sinusoida’ is the sixteenth pattern to be released under the Loumms Year of Socks. It will soon be available on Ravelry as a free download, but for now you can download the pattern here.

Please note that while we’ve done our best to make sure there are no errors, we can’t guarantee there aren’t any. If you find something that looks amiss, get in touch! We’ll be posting updates if we find any, but we are always grateful for feedback of any sort.
