Miriam is the Warm-Up pattern of Tour-de-Sock 2018.

This sock pattern is great for practicing stranded knitting. The floats are very short so the tension of the yarns is constant which for many knitters makes stranded knitting much easier. The pattern repeat is very simple so you don’t need to pay attention to it, but can instead focus on your hands.
