Step back into the 1980s – flashing lights, flashing dance floors, crazy clothes to match crazy hair-styles… ah, you can almost smell the nostalgia! These fun top-down intarsia socks are perfect for using up leftovers as well as any self-striping yarns that have long enough color sections to complete full blocks.

The socks are worked in the round using the intarsia technique. Each round is either knitted or purled and then a wrap and turn is used at the join to turn the work around to knit or purl back the other way. This means that the intarsia blocks can be worked without needing to carry the yarn across the colours.
