‘Sinusoida’ is worked from the toe up, featuring a short-row toe and a triangular decreased heel. The chart is worked over the foot and across the ankle then the never-ending round begins! Just keep following the spiral of the stitches, until the leg reaches its desired height.

‘Sinusoida’ is the sixteenth pattern to be released under the Loumms Year of Socks.

These socks were inspired by my love of patterns and charts that never appear to end while you are working them! It’s that strange hypnotic place that seems to occur in every pattern, where time stands still and you still seem to have an awful lot of yarn left.

Sinusoida is the Polish word for the concentrated sinusoid: the continuous trajectory of a line as it curves across a plane. The same logical yet organic progression is reflected here in a stitch pattern that rewrites our usual conception of working ‘in the round’!
