The Accented Socks are the perfect introduction to stranded knitting. The stitch pattern forms geometrical shapes, so it’s easy to keep your place in the chart. Also, they’re designed so that you never have to deal with a long float; the small pattern repeat keeps the yarns tidily lined up on the wrong side.
