I wanted to create a pair of striped socks where there was no color jog when you change colors. These socks make that happen, while the slipped stitch pattern lets both colors shine. Since these socks mirror each other, you will need to knit both a right sock and a left sock. I recommend knitting the right sock first, as learning the pattern is slightly more intuitive this way.

Directions are included for socks with both a standard length leg as well as shortie socks.

A video tutorial is included to show the effortless and invisible color changes while striping your two yarns together.
