The Brighton Dome is an amazing building full of soaring curves and striking structural fancies - just the thing to inspire my architecturally-driven design tendencies. These toe up socks were designed to commemorate the first Unwind Brighton yarn festival, and use a modified chevron pattern to mimic to soaring curves of the dome. The pattern is carried up the instep and circles the leg, finishing with 1x1 twisted rib.

Please note: pattern is written using magic loop or two circular needles, but can easily be adapted for dpns.
