These socks close 13 years of Sock Madness.

Once upon a time I came across a stitch pattern -- a colorwork stitch pattern -- that wouldn’t jog at the beginning of the round. And it even worked for a sock!
But didn’t for the second. So I spent couple of years searching and seeking for the ways to complete a pair.

Techniques used:

  • stranded knitting
  • stranded purling or knitting back backwards
  • Elastic Crocheted Cast-On (explained in pattern)
  • Heel stitch/Eye of Partridge stitch
  • modified Star toe

Yarn usage:

  • Vita Brilliant (MC): 1 skein in #4963 light grey – about 2/3 of skein was used1
  • Vita Brilliant Print (CC): 1 skein in #2605 brown-blurple-grey variegated – about 1/3 of skein was used

  1. If you use accent color then expect to substitute about 40% of MC used with AC.
