Named for the stripe loving character Riff Randell, this super stripy shorty sock incorporates centered increases and decreases to make a fun zig-zag pattern with an asymmetrical cuff. This sock is knit top-down and has short row shaping above the heel for a better fit. The striped heel is formed with German short rows and has a wider, deeper fit to mimic the fit of a sock with a heel flap. This is the perfect on-the-go project for fall, and can use up scraps of leftover sock yarn to make color-block stripes.

Materials
• Approximately 50g each of two colors of fingering weight yarn, or as many colors as desired if you choose to make color-blocked stripes. Samples shown are knit with Juniper and Muscle Up Buttercup from Hue Loco, and various minis from Hedgehog Fibres
• Size US 1 (2.25mm) needles, or size needed to obtain gauge (choose between a set of 5 DPNs, a 32”-40” circular needle for magic loop, two circular needles, or an 8”-9” circular needle depending on desired method)
• Stitch markers, I recommend using different color markers for each specific purpose
• Measuring tape or sock ruler
• Tapestry needle

Sizes
Extra-small (XS), Small (S), Medium (M), Large (L), fits foot circumference of 6.25 (7.25, 8.25, 9.25)” 16.5 (19, 21.5, 24) cm with .5” (1.25cm) negative ease.
Note about size: The stitch pattern in this sock can make the sock more snug, I have reflected this in the sizes above, but if you are a tight knitter or between sizes I would recommend sizing up.

Gauge
32 stitches = 4 inches (10cm) in stockinette stitch in the round.
