This sock pattern is one of 28 in my ebook, Personal Footprints for Insouciant Sock Knitters. My Personal Footprint method is fun and easy, and captivates even seasoned sock knitters with its innovative approach and ease of fitting any foot. It is ideal for normal feet as well as feet with unusually high or low insteps, and heels of all sizes and shapes.

You can paint texture onto a surface with horizontal bars of yarn. I’ve arranged the bars in lines that slide around the foot, with one sock mirroring the other. The fabric also looks beautiful on the inside. This yarn’s colorway is inspired by and named after Annie Modesitt’s husband, Gerry.
