These socks are really fun to knit and wear - the reverse stocking stitch makes them appear to be inside out, and the resulting texture will show off variegated yarns beautifully.

If you are worried that you’ll get ladders with all that purling, fear not - the knitted ‘seams’ are bridged across the ends of three DPNs so’s to avoid laddering, and helpfully make the inside-out appearance look more genuine! (You could actually knit these literally inside out to avoid tonnes of purling)

The short row heel and toe use stocking stitch, however feel free to use a heel flap if desired. Above all, have fun with these socks!
