Aqueduct Socks are designed for Magic Loop, with DPN instructions at the end for the bits that need special DPN instructionizing. :)

The architectural detail of the arch is formed by the stacks of increases and decreases, with the columns of stitches defining the shape.

The 10-stitch pattern repeats across 10 rounds, with purl stitches at the start and end of every 3 repeats. I’ve included both written instructions and a chart for the pattern.

Make these larger by adding additional purl stitches between pattern repeats, and smaller by removing purl stitches between the repeats.

These super easy cuff-down socks can easily be changed into toe-up by starting out with your favorite toe-up method, and working backwards up to the cuff to end with a stretchy bind-off.

04/27/2014. Oops! The written instructions ignore rounds 9 and 10. The .pdf includes the correction. This just goes to show even when a test knitter mentions something, you will inevitably upload the wrong version anyway. O.o
