It’s surprising to me that one stitch pattern can produce 2 different looks – depending on how the pattern is placed next to itself. I couldn’t decide which of two different placements I liked better and so decided to publish both this one and its (fraternal) twin – Twin Diamond Spiral Socks. (The stitch pattern in question is Diamond Spiral from Stanfield and Griffiths’s Encyclopedia of Knitting.)

This sock and its twin also feature a heel that I recently read about on Ravelry and have grown to love – a yo-yo (German Jo-jo) heel.

There are options for working the toe and eyelet cuff in a different color than the main portion of the sock.
