Worked from the toe up with a slipped stitch pattern, these socks are ideal for showing off a hand painted yarn. The stitch pattern on the main part of the sock was originally inspired by the half-linen stitch. By holding the yarn to the back while slipping stitches, the resulting piece keeps the appearance of a stockinette fabric, while blending together the various colors in the yarn.

A mirrored sinuous cable pattern on either side of the sock splits into two halves at the gusset, is reunited again while working the leg, and finally splits again when working the cuff. while working the leg, and finally splits again when working the cuff.
