This is the 6th pattern (and my 2nd contribution) for the 2011 round of Super Sock Scarefest. I was inspired by the classic Night of the Living Dead, and decided to knit a sock that looks like something the fashionable zombie-chick would wear.

The pattern is written for the two circular method of sock knitting, but can be easily adjusted to DPN or magic loop. It also features a faux-tear and several randomly placed runs to add to the look of “I’ve been chased through the woods by flesh-eating monsters”.

The sample (knit to accommodate a Woman’s size 10 shoe) used approximately half a skein of Dream In Color Smooshy in Scorched Lime, less than one ball of Knit Picks Palette in Bittersweet, about 25 yds of Palette in Fairy Tale, and 5 yds of Cascade Heritage in Cherry.
