Scottish born John Muir, “Father of American Environmentalism” is paid tribute in this rugged boot sock. Trail socks designed with sturdy structure and ease of knitting. Wide ribbing, corrugated ribbed ankle, “mock heel flap” ( that means no stitches to pick up for gusset), cushioning stranded heel, gusset, upper instep & toe.
Five sizes, x-small thru x-large. Options for short & ankle versions of trail sock, plus option for classic “Country Sock” and simple “Plain Sock” for the sake of pattern versatility. Designed with function & comfort in mind, where custom fit is best, and structural design elements are what they’re all about. I think John Muir would have approved and wish he had a pair!
A tribute to John Muir , submitted on his birthday, in the centennial year of the National Parks of America. Read about John Muir, Wild Sheep, and my mountaineering past on my blog HERE. Dedicated to my husband Jeff, with whom I’ve walked many miles along the John Muir Trail.

I invite Any & All who are knitting Wild Wool Trail Socks to bring questions, comments, and otherwise general pattern-related chattiness to my Jenjoyce Group which exists just for knitters of Jenjoyce’s patterns. Look for the thread for Wild Wool Trail Socks. The kettle is on… see you there !
