(description from magknits.com)
The zigzagging motif of these socks reminds me of jaywalking in Boston - right, left, then right again! The Jaywalker pattern is both visually interesting and simple enough for a beginner. It is suitable for solid, self-striping or variegated yarns - large portions of straight knitting allow color segments to remain distinct. The stitches are placed on a bias, which creates a snug, droop-less fit. Jaywalking while wearing these socks is entirely optional!
The toe up version of this pattern (written by a different designer) is no longer available.
