This is a top-down sock designed to meet the criteria for the annual “Textured Knit” challenge of the popular Sock Knitters Anonymous group on Ravelry. An easy-to-memorise pattern of knits and purls makes this mirrored sock suitable for beginning sock knitters looking for a bit more of a challenge than “Vanilla” socks.

While the pattern was initially designed for my son using a semi-solid yarn, my wonderful testers proved that striped and variegated yarns and softer, more feminine colours worked equally well. It is important to note that this pattern tends to eat yarn quite rapidly, thus good yardage is important.
