The twisted stitches in this toe-up sock with short-row heel make a nicely textured pattern that is fun and easy to knit, and results in a sock that even my husband will wear. Since the socks were for him, I left him to name the design. A few days later he returned with this play on the title of Paul Simon’s song, “Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes.”

This newly updated pattern includes 3 sizes, and both written and charted stitch instructions. The paid version of this pattern is available for download from Patternfish (see link below), and in printed format from your LYS.
