Nightingale is a toe-up, stranded colour work sock that uses just two yarns; one variegated and one almost solid. Pick two colours that contrast well with each other for maximum effect.

Extensive charts are provided including reversed versions for second sock.

Pattern assumes colour work and chart reading knowledge. Previous knowledge of toe-up sock knitting is not necessary.

Installment two from the Vintage Purls Sock Club Winter 2009.

The charted pattern on the front of this sock is an adaption of a chart found in The Priscilla Filet Crochet Book, No. 2 by Mrs F.W. Kettelle published in 1915.
