Lithosphere Sock

from Fixer's Fancies
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Lithosphere Sock
Lithosphere Sock
Lithosphere Sock

Pattern Description:

Lithosphere is inspired by geologic cross section diagrams where each rock layer is represented by a different color and hatch pattern. They're all done on computers now but when I was in school I loved producing beautiful hand-drawn and colored diagrams.

A variety of texture patterns including seed stitch, slipped stitch and eye of partridge represent the hatch patterns while the self-striping yarn provides the different colored layers.

This pattern is very unstretchy due to slipped stitches and ridges; please consider a yarn with either high wool content or some elastic content.


9 sts = 1 inch in stockinette

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Small, medium, large


  • 500 yards self-striping sock yarn
