p/hop for your feet! Download a sock pattern

p/hop is an official knitting fundraiser for Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF)/ Doctors Without Borders.

Generous designers have been donating patterns to p/hop since November 2008, and are available for your knitting pleasure. In return we ask that you make a donation to p/hop when you download your pattern (you can do it here  in most currencies). p/hop is based on an honesty box system and the amount you donate is completely up to you! A tremendous amount has already been raised in support of MSF’s life-saving work.

We now have twenty fabulous p/hop sock patterns available for you to download. Please click on the pattern picture for more details and the pattern pdf link.
