Colourwork knitting is often ornate bordering on absurdity. Sock designer Minna Metsänen took a swing in the opposite direction and designed Palkki, a sock with a pattern of compact rectangles. Certainly easier to follow than most colourwork patterns and a fresh variation. The sock features single-coloured Novita 7 Brothers Lappi and Novita 7 Brothers Pohjola, a slide-coloured yarn.

This pattern is also available in English.
