Phase Shift is a term used in science to describe two waves of the same wavelength, but with different starting points - i.e their phase is shifted.

On these socks you find a triangular wave (aka zig-zags) with shifting phase. They are made of purl stitches, providing a lovely bit of texture to the piece.

The back of the leg features a broad seed stitch/moss stitch panel. Customise the width of this panel to suit your needs.

One of the sample projects used contrasting yarn for cuff, heel and toe. This is purely optional. The pattern will stand out most on semi/solid colourways and a yarn base which provides good stitch definition.

The pattern presumes that you are somewhat familiar with sock knitting, sock architecture and knitting a heel.
The pattern does NOT include specific heel instructions. Many knitters have their very own way of doing this anyway. In case you’d prefer more details on heel knitting, I recommend the following bits:
