PATTERN NOTES These socks are knit from the toe up with an afterthought heel. The toe, heel, and cuff are each worked in a solid color. The rest of the sock features a mosaic-style slip stitch colorwork motif that incorporates right and left twisted stitches. Only one color is used per round. Work all slipped stitches purlwise with yarn held in back of work unless otherwise indicated.
This pattern features instructions that specify using DPNs due to the shifting nature of the Plaid Diamonds motif. However, other methods of knitting small circumferences, such as magic loop, will work for this pattern.
