This design is inspired by the Finnish fashion brand Marimekko.

This pair of socks is knitted cuff down and the pattern comes with german short row heel. The pattern is written for magic loop method, but can be adjusted for dpn’s.

The Ladder-Back Jacquard technique is used in the colorwork section and the fabric is thus stretchier than stranded colorwork would produce. If you knit stranded colorwork you might need more stitches or bigger needles for that specific section.
