It is a top-down sock, and it comes with TWO charted patterns - one you see here (chart 1) and its doppelganger (hence the name), the same stitch patterns but combined in a different way. You can choose one or the other, or use one of each - it's entirely up to you. Also, the pattern is made using wrapped stitches and psso's, so no cabling required at all for this pattern.

I've been crafting since forever, knitting fanatically since about 2006 and designing since 2008. When not knitting, I teach university students about primates and play with my horses.
