The classy look of these two-coloured socks with a diamond pattern in stranded knitting on leg and foot, makes them suitable for women and men alike.

The pattern panels change the main colour back and forth, so that cuff and toe are worked in one colour, while the leg and instep are worked in the second colour. For a more playful look, why not reverse the colours for the second sock?

The socks are knit from the cuff down with a heel flap and gusset. To accommodate the tighter fit of the colourwork parts, stitches are increased for this section and decreased when only working in one colour again.

The pattern includes two sizes: Women’s M and L to fit leg circumference 20 (22.5) cm 7.75 (8.75)”. Leg length and foot length are adjustable.

Please note that that the colourwork motif is charted only and there are no written instructions for the motif
