ERRATA: Please note that in pattern ver3 there’s a mistake in the toe instructions! The ribbing should continue uninterrupted on the top of the toe (i.e. the established ribbing is continued on needle 2 throughout the toe). Sorry for any inconvenience - the corrected version (ver4) has now been uploaded on TDS website.

Priha is the official warm up pattern of Tour-de-Sock 2017. The pattern is exclusive to the registered participants of TDS until the race is over in September 2017.

Priha is a basic ribbed cuff down sock pattern with easy stranded stripes both in the leg and foot. Instructions are given for three stitch counts, namely 64 / 72 / 80 sts.

The stranded patterns are inspired by Karelian handicrafts; priha is Karelian language, meaning a youngster in English.
