This pattern has been discontinued. It may possibly be re-released in the future, but there are no immediate plans to do so.

Feet are symmetrical - not identical. They are mirror images of each other, and I like my socks to reflect this.

These socks feature a simple slanting stitch pattern that is reversed on the opposite foot. The heels sport a slipped stitch pattern that creates a further variation on the slanting theme.

This pattern is especially well suited to variegated yarn. The long loop stitches use just a bit more yarn than regular stitches, so some rounds take more yarn than others. This helps prevent the pooling and flashing that can sometimes be a problem with handpainted yarns.

I have it on good authority that, with the right yarn choice, the pattern might even pass muster with the guys.
