When my teenager asked me to knit some pride-flag socks, I knew I wanted to include the Progress Pride triangle but didn’t see any sock patterns that included it - so I created it.

This top-down sock pattern includes an afterthought heel to accomplish this, and also has a mini-gusset to provide a little more room in the heel. Otherwise, this pattern is perfectly mindless knitting.

About the Progress Pride flag:

The Progress Pride flag was created by Daniel Quasar and is used here with their permission. It was designed to be a more inclusive pride flag, which includes the trans community (with the blue, pink and white stripes) and marginalized LGBTQ+ communities of color (with the black and brown stripes).
