Skill Level:

little skill level requirement Novice

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You should be able to knit and purl.
  • You should be able to read instructions.
  • You should be able to knit with a set of dpns.

Pattern Description:

These are very simple socks with a unique heel.

The pattern shows a way of doing stripes without yarn crossing. That makes the socks 'seamless' and it gives knitting the feeling of 'eternity'. The stripes just never end ...
Of course you can do the stripes also the traditional way, but you won't want to.

The heel is a variation of the Bomerang heel, which enables you to use 4 different colors - a rainbow. it is not as rectangle as the boomerang heel and clings to your heel very smoothly.
The harsh seamlike double stitches on the sides are avoided.

You can use any 4 ply sock yarn and you need 5 double pointed needles.
Since you need 4 colors (4 balls) anyway, I don't mention the needed amount of yarn or yardage.

Feel free to knit and sell the sock where ever you like, but you must not copy or sell the pattern. I would appreciate though if you mention me, GaBoSocks, as the designer.

Let us knit for eternity...

Knitting and crocheting is my destiny and it is great that DiY is en vogue again.
I'd love to share some of my ideas with ...
