Drawn to the look of Norwegian black and white stranded knitting, but think Xs and Os are better left to Henry VIII and Ms. Réage? Want to get retro with your needles, but feel legwarmers are a little too Flashdance? Need a little jailbait striping in your life, but not the record? Just want the neatest 2D feet this side of the century? These may just be the socks for you…or someone you love.

Each sock has a different chart for its cuff and plenty of possibility. Work them as written, or mirror one chart for an alternate universe pair. Use a variegated yarn when knitting the grimmees for a stained glass effect. Raid your leftovers for a rainbow look. Change the positioning of the repeating invaders on each sock. Substitute purls for stranded knitting for a very subtle impression. There are plenty of choices and ways to make these socks yours, including a number chart to immortalize your own high score.
