These socks were the result of needing a lace pattern that worked well with a variegated yarn. Rather than carrying the lace along the length of the foot, I liked the idea of tapering it off, so the socks look as though they are being unzipped.

A huge thank you to twoblackcats on Ravelry for allowing me to use photos of her finished Zippy socks for the pattern.
