From Knitty:

Handpainted or self-striping yarns are particularly suitable for this design, as they will highlight the unusual stitch direction flow.

The use of dpns is not recommended (designer’s note: it’s certainly possible to use dpns, but may be inconvenient): since increases and decreases occur on opposite sides of the foot, frequent redistribution of stitches would be necessary. In addition, there are up to 102 stitches on the needles at one time.

Although the main portions of the foot and leg are worked on 72 stitches, because they are turned diagonally, the fit of this sock is comparable to a 60-stitch traditional sock circumference at the same gauge. Heel fit is similar to a short-row heel with mini-gussets.

Errata:

  • The first ribbing set-up row should read “K2, [LLinc, k2] to 1 stitch before COR, LLinc, k1, sl marker, k1, RLinc, [k2, RLinc] to last 2 sts, k1, transfer last st to beg of round.”

  • A mistake in the big toe section in the original release has been corrected on knitty.com (pink text).

  • A mistake in the leg section in the original release has been corrected on knitty.com (pink text): short row pair 1 now reads “p31” instead of “p32”; likewise, short row pair 2 now reads “k31” instead of “k32”.
