A top down, heel flap sock with a pretty diamond design. The slipped stitches in this pattern are caught up in later rows causing the colors to criss-cross over one another. A very pretty sock in smaller sizes, this stitch pattern is great for highlighting the fabulous color changes in hand dyed yarns.
Note: Due to the nature of the slipped stitches causing there to be less stretch than stockinette stitch, those with a high instep should knit one size larger in the leg then drop to their regular size at the gusset for the foot.
