Polka Dot: a pattern consisting of a large array of dots, even in shape and size …

The rhythmic changing from knit to purl brings a steady tempo to my knitting - each row slightly different but always the comfort of knits and purls.

These subtly textured socks are a celebration of the polka dot, one of my favourite patterns. Worked from the top down they feature a short-row heel, with my all time favourite German Short Rows. A nifty mini-heel flap and gusset create a better fitting sock. The toe is worked in reverse stocking stitch so it doesn’t steal the show from those lovely polka dots.
