A simple colorwork pattern of interlocking diamonds forms the lower cuff, is modified on the foot, and is repeated on the toe of these socks. I wanted to design a sock pattern with colorwork (my favorite thing to knit!), but my normal clothing is conservative so I wanted socks that I could wear with anything in my closet. Most colorwork socks, while beautiful, would most likely end up as slippers if I knit them for myself.

A while back I saw a vest with a pattern of interlocking diamonds, and when I went to design my socks that inspiration came back to me. They aren’t too fancy, but they are very fun and quick to make and add a nice bit of interest to an outfit.
These socks take only minimal amounts of each contrasting color, so dig into your stash to find those little 15-gram leftovers you’ve been saving, and knit away!
