Formerly Mystery Top-Down ColorSox

So much color, so little work! One color-changing yarn used with a contrasting solid makes it look like you fussed and fiddled. Not so!

These socks were inspired by a Turkish sock stitch pattern. However, they sport the more-familiar structure of a Western-style top-down sock (rather than a Turkish structure).

The heel is reinforced with color, and starts with a heel flap. A Dutch heel turn is used to maximize the beauty of the checkerboard patterning all the way to the end of the heel.

This is a perfect pattern for those wanting to try stranded colorwork! Even within the colorful patterning on the leg, 2 out of 5 of the pattern rounds require just a single color (think of those rounds as “vacations” if you wish). There are many hints within the pattern to help you as you accustom yourself to this new and exciting technique!

This pattern is included with the “Shake it Up Sock Collection” of 11 patterns, or you can purchase the pattern separately.
