Sometimes all I want to knit is something with an easily remembered repeat, any eyelet here, a decrease there - more interesting that just stocking stitch but not too taxing on the ‘grey matter’ … this wish inspired these simple little socks - perfect for meditative knitting.

Each sock has its own distinct personality but they work beautifully as a pair. This is the sixth and final design in my ‘Correlative’ series - pairs that don’t match but echo each other instead.

Perfect if you suffer from second-sock syndrome or simply love quirky mismatched socks. Prefer your socks to match - no problem, simply pick Sock 1 or Sock 2 and make a matching pair…
