A very simple stranded design, but as so often, simplicity can create high impact. There is an original sock in a museum in Austria worked in just three colours that looks very striking, but I went for the full on leftover approach - go for what works best for you.

The pattern lent itself very well to mask the actual construction. Strictly speaking, this is a Strong Heel, but the gusset is disguised within the pattern.
