The combination of lace and chevrons in this sock is perfect for yarns with short color repeats. Solids, semi-solids, and tweeds would be marvelous, too.

Model: Model knit in size small, which with this yarn and gauge equates to a women’s medium foot.

Construction: Socks are knit top down. Pattern written so that either DPNs or circular needles can be used. Stitch pattern could be easily adapted for toe-up socks (not included).

Sizes: Small (64 sts) and large (72 sts).

Stitch instructions: charted and written.

Notions: Three stitch markers.


  1. The double YO becomes 2 sts on the following round: a knit and a purl.
  2. On round 2 you only knit chart A (the single slipped stitch) once per round.
  3. All rounds on the cuff: knit charts A, B 7 (8) times. In other words: Knit chart A once, then knit chart B 7 times (8 times for larger size).
  4. This is a snug-fitting sock. You might need to go up a needle size to ensure a good fit, especially if you’re a tight knitter.
