I fell in love with this slipped stitch pattern after using it for a swatch in level 3 of the Master Hand Knitter program, and I thought it would be perfect on a pair of socks.

The honeycomb lattice look (and the colors) reminds me of the chemical structure of the layers of graphite. Since it is a slipped stitch pattern, you work with only one color per row - so it looks much more complicated than it actually is!

These socks are knit from the toe up with a round toe and an afterthought heel.

Gauge: 34 sts and 51 rows = 4 inches in Stockinette.
40 sts and 72 rows = 4 inches in Thorn pattern.

To fit foot circumference of 8”.

You will need two different colors of fingering weight yarn.

Charts and written directions included.
