The Radii Socks pattern is a charted slip-stitch mosaic pattern consisting of an 8-stitch repeat. The sock pattern is written for toe-up socks using magic loop with an afterthought heel; however, the pattern can be converted into a cuff-down pattern knit on magic loop.

It is recommended to use colors that are in contrast with each other in order to ensure the contrast color will not be absorbed by the main color of the sock. The pattern is versatile regarding yarn selection for the pattern, therefore tonal, speckled, or variegated yarns can be used.

Finished size (approx.): S (6.2”), M (7.1”), L (8”).

Please keep in mind that socks require a snug fit because they stretch over the course of wear, therefore you want the finished sock measurement to be 10% less than your measured foot. circumference.
