The problem with colourwork in the round are the unsightly jogs at the start/ends of the rounds. No matter what tweaks I try to minimise these they still, as Pooh would say, bother me. So the best solution I could think of is to have left and right socks with the rounds starting on the inside of the foot.

The pattern has been written for toe up.
Full written instructions and the colourwork is also charted.
You never need to strand over more than 3 stitches - suitable for newbie stranded knitters.

160-230 yards/145-210 m Main Colour and 100-150 yards/91-136 m Contrast Colour fingering/4-ply sock yarn.

Any normal sock knitting gauge (choose your required stitch count/row gauge options). The sample was worked over 64 stitches at 32 sts/44 rows = 4”/10 cm.
