Use this basic pattern to design your own socks. Get out your stitch dictionaries and hunt for that perfect motif or stitch.

Go on over to my blog to get directions on how to use contrasting colors on the heels and toes!


This sock is lots of fun to knit, and the contrasting color used on the heels and toes helps the main-color yarn go farther so you can knit a longer leg on the sock!
