The page you are on links to the original version of the sock which is more of a description of my process rather than a detailed pattern.

If you are doing an Historic KAL or are looking for the Sock Summit related pattern, you want the PDF at the link below.

This is the spiffy, brand-new, modern, detailed version of the pattern. It was originally posted in a descriptive version, which is elsewhere on this site. Thanks to claning for beating it into shape.

Downloadable PDF with a detailed modern version of the pattern.

Additional Gauge Info:
Leg: 7 stitches per inch, 7 rows per inch
Foot: 8 stitches per inch, 8 rows per inch

You need close to equal amounts - between 275 and 325 yards - of EACH of two colors. The original colors were off-white and dark indigo. The yardage is estimated - you will need more if you have long feet or longer or wider legs.
