Skill Level:

little skill level requirement Novice

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit
  • purl
  • knit using 4 dpns

Pattern Description:

Knitting a sock with just one color is too boring. I designed these socks in contrasting colors to make the sock more interesting. The socks end up being funky enough that they can be worn shown off in Berks or similar sandles, or can been worn more formally under pants and inside shoes to work.

The socks feature contrasing ribbing as well as short row heels (the directions for which are well explained). I don't love a short rom heel myself either, BUT they look best for socks with a contrasting heel.


9st = 1 inch, and 11 rows = 1 inch

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • small
  • medium
  • large


  • size #1/ 2.25mm dpns
  • contrasting color sock yarn
