This sock is designed to combat the pooling that often occurs when using variegated yarn. The socks are knit toe up using a short row toe, a forked short row heel, and a picot bind off. The left and right socks are mirror images. Because the slipped stitches are only worked every fourth row, they do not count in the number of stitches worked around the sock. Thus, the socks may seem to have an abnormally high number of stitches.
