All proceeds from the sale of this sock pattern will be donated to the Red Cross for their Haiti Relief efforts. UPDATE: Combined sales from this sock pattern and the Polaris Sock pattern raised over 3 weeks donated $126 to the Red Cross! Thank you for your support! (This is no longer a charity knit, but I and the Red Cross appreciate all your support with pattern sales!)

A fast and fun sock that uses those great variegated sock yarns you’ve been hoarding! Finally a way to use up those interesting color ways without having to knit boring stockinette socks. The simple slipped stitch pattern moves the colors around a little bit to make a textured sock but the pattern is easy enough to memorize within a few repeats. Looks great in just about any sock yarn from solid to highly variegated.

Classic top down construction with a heel flap and gusset and grafted toe.

(Thanks to Teri Smith for test knitting this for me several times and to Chris Lough for naming this sock for me! Thanks guys!)
