Knit Sock Workshop »
InstructionsThese socks are worked from the toe up with a
Bosnian toe. The entire sock is worked in the
round except for the initial portion of the toe.
Stitches are worked in scrap yarn to create
the heel opening. After the rest of the sock has
been completed, the scrap yarn is removed
and the heel is worked.

What was your inspiration?
I've seen wonderful socks from Eastern Europe in museums and these are a simplified version of those socks, perfect for learning the techniques.
What are you most proud of?
I love the way the diamond pattern flows up from the foot onto the leg.
