These are fun. Almost embarrassingly so.
The stitch pattern is easy to learn (you likely won’t need to look at the chart after a few rows) and quick to do, but it looks satisfyingly impressive.
One panel of the stitch pattern runs down your heel, and another down the front of your leg. The one on the front wraps around your ankle (incorporating the gusset as it goes) and is quite flattering on the foot.
The rest of the sock is plain stockinette, which makes them perfect for on the go knitting.
Even better, the socks are mirrored, so you’re not likely to get bored before you’re done.
The pattern is written in three sizes (56, 64, and 72 stitch cast on) and includes instructions on how to make a 4, 6, and 8 inch high leg.
