Pattern Description:

This sock is designed to combat the pooling that often occurs when using variegated yarn. The socks are knit toe up using a short row toe, a forked short row heel, and a picot bind off. The left and right socks are mirror images. Because the slipped stitches are only worked every fourth row, they do not count in the number of stitches worked around the sock. Thus, the socks may seem to have an abnormally high number of stitches.


31 stitches and 53 rows = 4 inches in stockinette in the round

Melissa Lemmons on

I have been doing some type of needle craft for as long as I can remember. When I was really little, it was crochet and embroidery. I finally learned how to knit in high school and really took off with it in college. Now I am designing my own patterns. I love intricate yet intuitive designs, so expect a lot of lace, cables, and colorwork in my patterns.
