When I was invited to design a colorful sock pattern to benefit Down Syndrome International, I knew bright stranded colorwork was the way to go. The triangular motif is a reference to the third copy of the 21st chromosome. Choose a five-color miniskein set or wrangle some leftovers!

These socks are knit from the cuff down and have a traditional heel flap and gusset. You’ll only work with two colors at a time. Remember: colorwork socks do not stretch well, so choose a size that has 0 ease, which means it matches your foot/leg circumference.

Knitting in the round, stranded colorwork management (2 active colors per round)
