This fabric has significantly less stretch than Stockinette, and for comfort, the socks need to be a little larger than for plain fabric. Choose a size closest to your actual measurement.

Gauge
32 sts and 48 rnds = 4” (10 cm) in Stockinette st on smaller needles.
32 sts and 32 rnds = 4” (10 cm) in colorwork patt on larger needles.

Notes
Be sure to choose yarns with high contrast and no similar colors between the two yarns. If there is any overlap in colors, the design will become muddled.
When working stranded colorwork, one color will be dominant, meaning that the stitches are slightly larger and this color will be more prominent. In this design, you can choose either color to be dominant, but the important thing is to be consistent. To do this, make a note of how each color is held and be sure that the position of the yarns remains the same throughout the socks.
