The chart legend has the colours reversed. The purple (dark) squares are MC, and the light squares are CC.

Worked top down, this sock features a startlingly easy allover colorwork design. The very regular pattern is quickly memorized. Because a color is never worked for more than three consecutive stitches, it’s relatively easy to maintain even tension, which makes this a good choice for first-time colorwork.

Pattern is written so that it can be worked on DPNs, magic loop or 2 circulars, as you prefer. Foot and leg length are adjustable to fit.
