Inspired by Sock Madness 10 and 11. What is a “Nogardaton?” Well, that is for me to know and for you to figure out. It likes to play with self-striping yarn. Although, it will play with solids and semi solids if that is all that is around.

Warm-up sock for Sock Madness 12.

Knit top down with a bobbled trimmed, ribbed cuff, the lace pattern plays with the stripes to form fun waves of color. The short row heel (using shadow wraps) with a mini gusset accommodates those with a higher instep who might otherwise have trouble with the fit of a traditional short row heel.

The pattern has both charts and written instructions.
