A sinuous sockitecture adventure!

These socks are worked flat in two sections, except for the cuff and toe. The heel is a no-wrap short-row heel tucked into the first section of the sock. Stitches are picked up along the edges of the first panel so the second panel can be joined as you go along – no intarsia, no seaming. Spiraling is achieved with simple increases and decreases at the beginning and end of each knit row. Directions are included for both a wedge toe and a star toe.

This pattern is written with no specific sizes but instructions are given to make this work for whatever “magic number” you typically use for socks. Instructions also provided for calculating the number of stitches needed.

These socks take the usual 100g / 400 yards of fingering weight yarn, divided evenly between two colors.
