This sock is written top down. If you’re interested in a toe up version, download a copy of Brenda’s Basic Toe Up Sock and add the stitch pattern into her pattern, which is always free here on Ravelry.

What’s great about this pattern is that it works well with any yarn. When using a solid or variegated yarn it lends a soft texture to the sock’s look. With a self-striping yarn, it has a bolder effect, scattering colors over each other, all while not overpowering the stripes.

The accent stitches of this pattern move in a slow spiral across the sock, reminding me of the Sand People of Tatooine who move in single file lines to hide their numbers.
