I’ve released a collection of progress keepers to accompany this sock design. Please visit my shop to see the collection. For a sneak peek, see the second photo.

These socks are knit inside-out and in the round. The stockinette stitches are on the inside of the sock for a more comfortable footbed. The heel features shadow wrap short rows. See the video link under the stitch guide on this page. There’s also a photo tutorial in the pattern. These socks are meant to be worn as ankle socks but more repeats can be added for a longer sock. Each 6-rnd pattern repeat will add another approx. 5/8”/1.6 cm to the sock. See gauge below. This pattern is charted and also includes written instructions for the charts.
