Designed by Jill Wright. 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. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knitting in the round Slip stitches Gusset Short row shaping GAUGE 30 stitches = 4 inches in Slipped Stitch Pattern SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS foot circumference: 7.5 (8, 8.5)"
