The colourway of the yarn used in the sample, In a world of locked rooms, the man with the key is king is a quote by Moriarty, the clever nemesis of Sherlock Holmes. This pattern is inspired by Moriarty. The design features a dropped stitch pattern down the front of the leg and top of the foot and simple ribbing down the back of the leg and top half of the short row heel.

This stitch pattern combined with the ribbing makes a very stretchy sock. You may find that you need to make a smaller circumference size than usual; let your gauge swatch be your guide.

The pattern is needle-neutral, so you can knit it with your needle of choice in your preferred style. Written instructions are provided, and the stitch pattern is easily reversible for knitters who prefer to knit socks toe-up. Instructions are included for narrow, medium, wide and extra wide widths. Foot length is customizable.
