Squares in four different textured patterns flow down the leg and form a patchwork-like pattern. The heel flap emerges between the stripes of squares and is worked in the round in a fifth knit and purl pattern. The toe, worked with paired increases, features yet another textured pattern on the top of the foot - knits and purls at their best!

The socks are knit from the top down and feature a hybrid fleegle heel, i. e. heel flap and gusset are integrated into the leg and are knit in the round. The pattern includes three sizes to fit leg circumference: S - 17.5 cm (7”), M - 20 cm (7.75”) and L - 22.5 cm (8.75”). Leg length results in 21.75 (24, 25.5) cm 8.5 (9.5, 10)“ when knit as given in the pattern, but is adjustable (see notes in pattern). Foot length is adjustable.

You can choose to work the textured patchwork pattern either from the charts or the written instructions.
