The Hitini pattern provides instructions and a color guide that will allow you to use your bits of leftover sock yarn to knit chevron striped socks. The pattern also works well with self-striping colorways, especially when they are combined with one or two complementary colors.
The chevron design flows through this sock from the garter-stitch cuff to the toe. The patterning is echoed in the slip-stitch heel flap in the Cuff-down version. The toe-up version includes instructions for a short-row “Boomerang” heel that avoids the p3tog’s of a standard short-row heel.
The pattern includes both versions for one price. Either way, toe up or cuff down, it makes a beautiful sock from leftovers.
Regarding the files: There are 3 files, one for each of the versions and a landscape version of the chart for the smaller size of the cuff-down version. It is not necessary to download this landscape chart, since it is included in the pattern in portrait-style. The chart pdf produces a slightly larger print for those that prefer larger type. The toe-up pattern is marked with an i, for interim, and will be updated as needed when all testers have finished.
I am indebted to Amy Jones for her most helpful technical editing. Amy also created the charts from my spreadsheets.
