Pattern Details

Spice up your self-striping sock yarns with this toe-up sock. Start with a single-yarn, garter-stitch, short-row toe worked on two needles, then knit in the round with a two-color-per-round chequered pattern. This pattern is designed to give a new look to a yarn that would usually give stripes when used singly. The use of garter stitch for the heel and toe and two-color- per-round patterning, make for a strong cozy sock. This pattern is included in my book, Cool Socks Warm Feet, which is available in paper or pdf format from my website: If you like this pattern, be sure to check out my Craftsy class, My First Socks, with lifetime access and a 100% money-back guarantee: BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knitting in the round two-colour knitting GAUGE variable, but aim for a firm, dense fabric SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS adjustable Adult
