These socks are a part of Sock Madness 12 and will be available for general public upon the end of the competition somewhen in June 2018.

Techniques Used:

  • helix knitting
  • slip-stitch knitting in two colors
  • cabling without cable needle (optional)
  • Elastic Crocheted Cast-On (explained in the pattern)
  • German short-rows (most short-row methods will do)
  • modified HG heel
  • grafting (optional)

Note on yarn usage:
If you have only one 50 g skein of CC yarn then it would be wise to reserve about 7-8 g for both toes after the instep chart.
