This pattern is available from for $1.99.

Here is a pattern that actually looks good in patterned yarn (though not in self-patterning yarn or twist yarn). Pooling actually works well here.

The sock is worked from the toe up. It has a Fleegle heel, a eyelet cuff, and a rounded toe variation. The top/front of the sock features a crossing diamond pattern (using left and right twists). The back has a lace mesh. (Both patterns are adapted from stitch patterns created by Gail Dennis of

It has multiple sizes (since I have a narrow foot and have trouble finding socks narrow enough). It also has a tapered leg.
